Ingredients: Stearyl Stearate

Derived from sustainable palm.

This is a solid, waxy ester that is used to provide emolliency, substantivity and shine to lipsticks, hair conditioners, moisturisers and lotions. This ingredient is also used as a thickener and rheology modifier in oil-only products (such as balms & solid moisturisers).

Adding this to a solid moisturiser can improve glide and after-feel as it creates a less sticky or waxy finish than most waxes.

Origin: Vegetable feedstock.

Solubility: Soluble in alcohols, esters, mineral and vegetable oils. Dispersible in glycols.

Melting point: 55-58C.

Use level: 1-20%.

Formulating tip: Add to your oil phase and heat to melt it in with the other components.
