OLEAMULS® LOW is a liquid non-ionic Oil in Water emulsifier based on a new combination of a polyglycerol ester with vegetable fatty acids derived from natural and renewable raw materials: Polyglycerol from vegetable glycerine, Fatty acids from Olive Oil, Potassium Olivate.

OLEAMULS® LOW is specifically designed to create low viscosity liquid crystals emulsions ensuring an effective emulsifying action even in cold processes.

The percentage of interlamellar water in this liquid-crystal structure can reach up to 70% and is immediately available once applied on the skin resulting in particularly refreshing and light skin feel even in the presence of high amount of oil.

Versatile in terms of formulation and compatibility with all active ingredients, it is also well-tolerated by the skin.

Simple devices for mixing / homogenizing can be used: add oily phase in the aqueous phase while stirring and/or use the turboemulsifier.

  • Made from plant-derived raw materials, Palm Oil-free.
  • For low viscosity liquid crystals emulsions as an alternative to PEG emulsifiers.
  • It can be used through the cold-processing technique. 
  • Compatible with all active ingredients.
  • The emulsion obtained is stable, silky, fresh, pleasant to apply and resistant to variations in temperature.
  • Pleasantly light and silky sensation, even when high quantities of oleaginous substances are present. Eudermic properties with moisturizing and nourishing effect.
  • Soluble in plant-derived oils, fatty alcohols, and in fatty acids and their esters. Miscible with mineral oils.
