e-Zine (PDF, 1.1 MB)
In this eZine, Susan talks about emulsifiers that create an oil-in-water lotions, which generally means there’s more water than oil in the formula. Susan shares extensive write-ups for each emulsifier, along with a sample formula or two for each one. This eZine contains many formulations! In this zine she also writes about how to use different rheology modifiers or gelling agents, like Sepimax ZEN or Sepinov EMT 10, and solid esters, like cetyl palmitate or myristyl myristate, to thicken our products instead of relying on fatty acids or fatty alcohols. At 70 pages, this eZine is a very detailed and informational read, and definitely worth a read for anyone making lotions or using any sort of emulsifier in their lab.
