Description

Olivem® 1000 is a PEG-free self-emulsifying multifunctional ingredient (white to ivory waxy flakes at 20°C, melting point ~ 70°C).  It is a complex combination of fatty acids, chemically similar to the lipidic composition of the skin surface. This product has the ability to generate liquid crystal structures that mimic the stratum corneum organization. As the sole emulsifier, this product 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 COSMOS-validated. The recommended use level for Olivem® 1000 is 1.5 – 4% in o/w emulsions as the sole emulsifier (3 – 4% for higher viscosity systems). Shelf life: 60 months.
