OLEAMULS® WO

Water in oil emulsifier for providing liquid crystal emulsion


INCI

POLYGLYCERYL-6 PENTAOLEATE

DESCRIPTION

Ester of Polyglycerol with Olive Oil’s fatty acids
OLEAMULS® WO is a non-ionic COSMOS approved and palm-free Water in Oil emulsifying system obtained from the esterification of olive oil’s fatty acids with vegetal polyglycerol. It represents the ideal alternative to common PEG emulsifiers.

OLEAMULS® WO forms a lattice of liquid crystals within the emulsion making it look smooth and glossy in appearance, hardly oily to the touch and pleasant to apply.

It allows to formulate stable emulsions containing as low as 30-35% of natural oils as their sole source of lipids regardless of their polarity and obtain completely natural emulsions with a soft and light feel interestingly unusual in water in oil systems.

ORIGIN

Ester of Polyglycerol with Olive Oil’s fatty acids

PROPERTIES

  • Non-ionic emulsifier, 100% plant-derived and palm-free.
  • Thanks to the liquid-crystal structures it is possible to have stabilisation of the emulsion viscosity even in presence of lipid phases with different polarities.
  • Effective at dispersing pigments and sun filters.
  • The emulsion obtained is smooth and glossy in appearance with a pleasantly light feel and emollient property.
  • Easy to use at low temperatures (cold processing), soluble in ethanol, mineral and vegetal oils, fatty acids, fatty alcohols and their derivatives.

APPLICATIONS

As sole emulsifier: 3 - 6%

Ideal for dry skin products, baby skin products and sun care products. It can be used to formulate creams, lotions and cosmetic milks for sensitive skin, creams for children, sun care and after-sun products, protective creams, foundations and other products for make-up.

TEST

  • It has been proven that liquid crystal emulsions moisturise the epidermis and protect it by reducing TEWL.
