Will this correct Shea that has gone grainy?, or does it only prevent it from going grainy.

If you have Shea Butter that is grainy, I would recommend tempering it first, then incorporate the lotion bar additive.

Does this replace the beeswax in a lotion stick recipe?

Thx

Hi! While you could replace your beeswax with the Smooth & Creamy (a derivative of beeswax), you only need 5% to get a smooth lotion bar. So I would recommend substituting that amount from the beeswax in your recipe for the S&C lotion additive.

would you replace 5% of the emilsifying wax (10-15%)with lotion bar additive?
