Emulsifying Wax is self-emulsifying and highly compatible with most cosmetic and pharmaceutical ingredients. Low concentrations improve the consistency and stability of emulsions.

Emulsifying Wax comes from plant based fatty alcohols. It is self-emulsifying and highly stable in both acidic and basic media. Emulsifying Wax is white, low in odor and has a broad range of applications as it is highly compatible with most cosmetic and pharmaceutical ingredients.

Formulators use it in creams, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, pomades and sunscreens among other similar products.
