Emulfeel® - Versatile skin formulas01/27/2017
|Emulsions are and will continue to be the most used galenic form in cosmetics for several reasons: they are extremely versatile, they allow the incorporation and stabilization of lipophilic and hydrophilic ingredients and they can have different textures, sensorial and viscosities.|
The conventional way to prepare emulsions is using anionic or cationic surfactants, and/or ethoxylates, with high temperature and high-shear agitation. This process demands time, energy and specific equipment as the production of an emulsion involves maintaining the stability of an immiscible system.
Even using all the appropriate equipment, ingredients and processes, emulsions frequently face stability issues. To overcome these issues, the combination of two or more surfactants is regular practice, as is the use of rheology modifiers to thicken the aqueous phase.
Emulfeel® SGP CHI is a emulsifier based on Double Gel Network (DGN) technology with a high degree of vegetal ingredients, that provides structuring of lipid and aqueous phases. It enables the reduction of ingredients and versatility in the creation of viscous or fluid textures in addition to ensuring a light, aqueous and velvety residual sensorial. It can also be used as a sensorial adjustment or viscosity modifier, in cold or hot processes.
- The same sensorial performance while using 44% less ingredients
- 33% increase in the perception of fragrance explosion
- High stability in wide temperature range (5-80°C)
- Softness on contact with the skin – without surfactants
- Sensorial versatility – from light lotions to body butters
- Greater practicality
- Versatility in the process – cold or hot processes
Concentration of use 2 to 5% as the main emulsifier and 0.5 to 2% as co-emulsifier or sensorial modifier. With Emulfeel® SGP CHI it is possible to develop emulsions with various textures and sensorial, such as creams, gels, lotions, creams-serums and butters.
