Kostol PGP is a new emulsifying wax based on a lower HLB blend of high molecular weight compounds. This higher molecular weight emulsifier produces emulsions with 3-5% usage levels in water. This type of emulsion is creamy in consistency, very light and hydrating on the skin and produces viscosities ranging from 2500- 4500cps.

Kostol PGP functions as an emulsifier for W/O and O/W, mild thickener, solublizer, and skin conditioning. Kostol PGP is soluble in most cosmetic raw materials that are common in the emulsion oil phase.
