A thick, yellow to brownish liquid produced from natural olive oil. It is readily biodegradable.

When a shampoo has been used, not only is grease and sebum removed from the hair, but also from the scalp. This can leave the scalp feeling dry, tight and itchy. Omega Fat Restoring Agent provides a soothing lipid coating for the scalp that does not adhere to the hair so the hair is not left lank and heavy.

It can be added to surfactants without affecting the lathering power or thickening properties.

In surfactant blends, it can be used as a solubiliser for essential oils at a ratio of 1:6 (oil to Omega).

It can also be used as a co emulsifier when making creams and lotions.

Inci:

PEG-10 Olive Glycerides
