Natural Emulsifier GSC palm oil free is an anionic, natural and palm-free O/W emulsifier based on rapeseed (canola) oil.
INCI: Glyceryl stearate citrate
This emulsifier could be used as a standalone emulsifier or in combination with nonionic emulsifiers to improve the texture and stability of the emulsions.
Dermofeel ® GSC palm oil free complies with Ecocert, BDIH, Cosmos and NaTrue standards .
Application dosage: 0,5-4,0%
Oil phase concentration: 15-40 %
Melting range: 58-62 °C
This is a hot process emulsifier. Heat the emulsifier with the oil phase to 75-80 degrees Celsius, heat the water phase separately. When the emulsifier is completely melted blend the oil phase and slowly add the oil phase to the water phase and blend. Homogenize the mixture for a few minutes. Stir and cool down the emulsion. At about 35-40 degrees add sensitive ingredients and the preservative and adjust the pH (According to the preservative)
Dermofeel ® GSC palm oil free creates medium viscosity emulsions when used alone. You can increase the viscosity of the emulsions by adding butters, waxes or fatty alcohols to the oil phase. The higher the oil phase concentration and the concentration of butters and waxes the higher the emulsion viscosity.
This is a very versatile emulsifier for a broad range of purposes from hand and body moisturisers to cleansing emulsions, baby products and hair conditioners. It creates white emulsions (unless you use oils and extracts with an intensive colour) with a very silky and luxurious appearance. It is free from that horrible soapiness accompanying many natural emulsifiers.
