OK, when I order a supply, I order in bulk. I generally buy a years worth. The problem with that is, when I run out a tear later & return to my supplier:

A) They have gone out of buisness
B) The discoed the item months ago
C) They jacked up the price

I have run out of silica gel, the last time I stocked up on silica gel it was 4-5 dollars a pound, now it $9.00!

Does anyone have a source that is reasonable & ships quick?

I have a wholesale order staring breathing down my neck & need it quick. I will probably oredr from ToDieFor, but their shipping on 1 pound is $10.00-ouch, they are just 2 hours away.

No, silica gel is a powder you add to oil to turn it into a gel. I use it to gel my oils so my scrubs don't seperate.

I bit the bullet & bought 5# from ToDieFor. With shipping it was $48.00 Ouch!

5# will make (80) 4oz scrubs for me which means I am spending .60cents on silica for 1 scub. That is too high!

Wow; that's pricey!
I didn't realize it went up so much.

That's so true. I'm contemplating raising my prices before the holidays.
