Olivem 800 is a natural source non-ionic emulsifying system developed from natural olive chemistry designed to provide optimum stability in low viscosity/super-fluid emulsions with a light silky feel. Created using olive oil in an esterification process with pre-ethoxylated cetearyl alcohol, it contains the long carbon atom chains (C16-C22) from pure refined olive oil. It is especially suited for the creation of hyperfluid systems and can be used to create sprayable lotions able to incorporate up to 90% water into the formulation. It can be used to provide oil-free formulations working as the only lipid source. It easily creates milk-like stable emulsions which can be thickened with a variety of thickeners as needed (cetyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol, xanthan gum, HEC, etc.). Olivem 800 is totally compatible with a broad range of low pH active ingredients.
