Skin Care
The emulsifier is recognised as an emollient which softens and smooths the skin as well as slowing down transepidermal water loss (TEWL). This means that when using this emulsification system, you are hydrating the skin and keeping it younger looking.

Suitable for all skin types.

Hair Care
As it is non ionic, it is not compatible with cationic materials so has no great effect with hair care products.

Other
Use at 0.5% to 10%.

Fat soluble so add to the Stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions. Add the Stage 1 (fat stage) to Stage 2 (water stage).
