Emulsifier HE20, Ecocert approved

INCI: Cetearyl glucoside & sorbitan olivate

The cetearyl glucoside is from coconut oil and sugarcane, the sorbitan olivate from olive oil and wheatgerm oil.

Use at around 6% of total cream.

Emulsifier HE20 is a 1-pot emulsifier so is used differently from usual emulsifiers.

All ingredients go in the same pot (that is both water and oil phases), heat until the oil phase is melted then blend.

Emulsifier HE20 has been developed from natural ingredients, is PEG-free and without preservatives or additives.
It is a nonionic oil-in-water emulsifier, based on olive oil fatty acids which are known for their excellent compatibility with lipids present in skin. Therefore it is particularly suitable for sensitive skincare products.
The ability to form liquid crystal systems allows the making of products which are particularly compatible with the lipid structures of the skin.
Emulsifier HE20 is a versatile material which can be used in a variety of formulations and the resulting creams have a particularly light touch with a smooth and velvety after-feel, leaving a sensation of comfort and nourishment without any greasy residue.
