OLEAMULS® OW

Liquid crystals and palm free emulsifier for light textures


INCI

POLYGLYCERYL-4 STEARATE, POTASSIUM OLIVATE

DESCRIPTION

Ester of Polyglycerol with Olive Oil’s fatty acids
OLEAMULS® OW is an Oil in Water, COSMOS approved and palm-free emulsifying system derived from 100% renewable raw materials of Italian origin that represents a valid alternative to usual emulsifiers containing PEG. It forms a lattice structure in the form of liquid crystals that helps to retain the aqueous phase and therefore the moisturizing effect of the product created.

OLEAMULS® OW allows formulating with as much as 60% of polar or medium polar oily phase containing natural oils as their sole source of lipids. It is specifically designed to obtain light and evanescent texture which are easy to absorb.

ORIGIN

Ester of Polyglycerol with Olive Oil’s fatty acids

PROPERTIES

  • 100% plant-derived raw materials and palm-free.
  • For light texture emulsions manufactured via heated processing technique in alternative to the Oil in Water (O/W) PEG emulsifier.
  • Thanks to the liquid-crystal structures it is possible to have stabilization of the emulsion viscosity even in presence of lipid phases with different polarities.
  • The emulsion obtained is satiny and shiny in appearance.
  • Soft and light feel, with a refreshing sensation to the skin when applied. High skin absorption with the effect of reducing water loss.
  • Easy to use, it is fully dispersible in warm water and miscible in vegetal and mineral oils.
  • Good density, limited thixotropic behavior and stable viscosity over time. Very low sensitivity to variations in temperature.

APPLICATIONS

As sole emulsifier: 3.5 - 6.0%
Ideal for day and night creams, sensitive skin products and products for young skin prone to oiliness.

TEST

  • An “in vivo” efficacy study was implemented to detect the capability of OLEAMULS® OW in boosting skin hydration.
  • It has been proven that liquid crystal emulsions moisturize the epidermis and protect it by reducing TEWL.
