EC# 700-891-2

Simulgreen™ 18-2 is natural source, all-in-one liquid crystal emulsifier derived from castor oil and sugar that contains no ethoxylated ingredients. It is a non-ionic oil-in-water emulsifier that can be used to emulsify vegetable oils, silicones, and esters. It can emulsify oils when used as low as 2%, and has good compatibility with electrolytes.

Lotions made with Simulgreen™ 18-2 will be lighter and easier to spread than those made with traditional emulsifying waxes . It prevents the soaping effect found with other emulsifiers, and it is absorbed more quickly by the skin. Actives and lipids can penetrate the skin more easily due to the liquid crystal emulsion’s ability to mimic the lipid bi-layers of the stratum corneum, leading to a reduction in transepidermal water loss and an increase in moisturizing properties.

It is ECOcert and Nature approved, and derived from sustainable vegetable sources without the use of solvents. It is considered biodegradable.

 

Key benefits:

  • Natural source vegetable emulsifier from sustainable sources
  • No soaping effect in creams and lotions
  • ECOcert and Natrue approved
  • Green technology ingredient

Formulating with Simulgreen™ 18-2

When using this emulsifier, a stabilizer like xanthan gum used at 0.5% can increase stability. Fatty alcohols used at low levels (1 to 3%) can also be used to help increase the formation of the liquid crystal structure. Simulgreen™ 18-2 offers a creamy texture as low as 3%, and can be used as low as 2% with vegetable oils. When making a lotion, it is suggested that the water phase be poured into the oil phase, then mixed using a stick blender before moving to a hand mixer.
