Emulsifiers : The Essential Ingredient of creams and lotions

Emulsifiers

Did you know you cannot formulate a rich cream without an emulsifier?

What are emulsifiers you ask?

Creams and lotions need to have oil and water. the two liquids that naturally prefer to stay separated.

Emulsifiers attract both oil and water, thus making it the best solution to blend these two together.

Emulsifiers do the impossible task of mixing oil and water and turning them into a stable solution. This is necessary for the preparation of a variety of skincare and hair care products.

Emulsifiers also benefit the skin by treating dryness and keeping it hydrated, soft, and shiny. They also give a creamy texture to the product that’s easy to spread and absorb on the skin.?‍♀️

You get the idea that they are pretty essential right?

There are many synthetic emulsifiers used in making/formulating cosmetics.

But at Learn Canyon, we prefer to use natural and organically derived emulsifiers to make clean and effective skincare products that are safe and create long-lasting effects on the skin and hair.

3 most common natural emulsifiers are:

Xyliance: It is made by deriving from wheat straw and is easy to use and creates very stable emulsions. Xyliance gives a very rich, creamy and non-oily texture.

Olivem 1000: This emulsifier is derived from natural Olive. It provides excellent moisturising and spreading properties.

BTMS50: It is a commonly used vegetable derived emulsifier. It can be used in hair conditioners, skin care products like creams and lotions and scrubs.

Emulsifiers are tricky to work with. They require a lot of skill and practice.

But at the same time, they are an essential ingredient of skincare and haircare formulations.
