Glycol Distearate

After reading TheBeautyBrains - "Guide To How Beauty Products Work."  I wanted to mix a 2-in-1 shampoo formula of my own.  The key ingredients to the "conditioning" part of this formula is a mixture of Glycol Distearate and Dimethicone.  I found all the ingredients needed at the common online chemical suppliers but could only find the Glycol Distearate in a minimum quantity of 55 lbs.!  I went ahead and ordered it, but now have about 50 lbs. too much!  It worked out to cost about $5.00 / lbs. with shipping.......Would anyone like to buy some Glycol Distearate in smaller amounts of around 1 to 5 lbs.?

    Damn, that's a lot of glycol distearate, Scott! 

    You might have better luck by posting this over at Perry's other website, because I think there are more formulators in his audience.
