Product Name: OLIVEM® 1000


This HallStar PEG-free self-emulsifying multifunctional ingredient (white to ivory waxy flakes at 20C, melting point ~ 70C), is a complex combination of fatty acids, chemically similar to the lipidic composition of the skin surface. It has the ability to generate liquid crystal structures that mimic the stratum corneum organization. As the sole emulsifier, it provides a deep moisturizing effect with excellent spreadability and no soapy effect. It has good compatibility with Dihydroxyacetone and with alpha-hydroxy acids and is useful in formulations with pH 3 - 12. Further, it is validated by Ecocert. The recommended use level is 1.5 - 4% in O/W emulsions as the sole emulsifier (3 - 4% for higher viscosity systems). Shelf life: 60 months.
