Olive Oil Unsaponifiables
CAS No. 156798-12-8
Olive Oil Unsaponifiables are naturally derived from the unsaponifiable oil fractions of olives after pressing. Rich in phytosterols and glycolipids, it is of benefit in replenishing those lipids lost from the skin, restoring suppleness and flexability.
Refining select fractions of olive oil unsaponifiables produces an oil rich in both squalane and squalene, making it an ideal replacement for animal squalane. Relatively stable from oxidation due to the natural inhibitors it contains, it has been further fortified with tocopherol.
Olive Oil Unsaponifiables are soluble in oil and ethanol. It is recommended for anhydrous products where its ability to blend with the moisture in the skin, lips or hair allows the use of an active moisturizing claim in these products. It is also easily incorporated into emulsions, day and night creams, liquid makeup, lipstick, mascaras and eyeliners, as well as hair conditioners, and hair dressings.
Typical composition follows:
- Squalane 55 - 70%
- Squalene 15-25%
- Glycolipids 10-15%
- Phytosterols 1-7%
