This is an easy to work and forgiving O/W emulsifier (completely plant derived and suitable for vegan formulations- not palm-free).
The emulsifier is self-emulsifying and promotes lamellar structure for an improved barrier protection and repair. You can add this emulsifier to the water or to the oil phase and can emulsify 0-25% oil phase with 3-5% emulsifier.
It has a very soft and non-greasy skin feel with no soapiness.
We recommend this emulsifier for all hair & skin care products such as : baby products, cleansing milks, after sun, shower creams, day and night care.
