Oliwax® is a multipurpose stabilizing lipid derived from ultra refined pure olive oil. It is a highly lipophilic active emollient with outstanding dermatological behavior while also improving the stability of o/w and w/o emulsions as well as anhydrous systems.
Oliwax® exhibits original characteristics of excellent spreadability, imparting very light touch and a gentle skin feel in both hair and skin care products. It provides outstanding moisturizing properties and a unique texture even when used at low dosage levels (1 – 3%). When used as a hair conditioning agent, it improves both the silkiness and overall manageability of the hair. It is delivered safely into the cutaneous mantle. Oliwax® is approved by COSMOS.
The recommended use levels for Oliwax® are 2 – 5% in emulsions, 1 – 5% in make-up products as an emollient structuring and oil-gel agent, 1 – 5% in hair care products as a conditioning agent, 1- 4% in w/o emulsions as a stabilizing agent, 1 – 3% in o/w emulsions as an emollient hydrating and moisturizing and stabilizing agent, and 1 – 3% in sunscreens for viscosity stabilization. Shelf life: 60 months.
