OLEAMULS® W/O is a non-ionic water in oil emulsifying system obtained from the esterification of olive oil’s fatty acids and represents the better alternative to the common PEG emulsifiers. It forms a lattice of liquid crystals within the emulsion making it look smooth and glossy in appearance with a soft and light feel, unusual in water in oil systems.

Palm-free and environmentally-friendly because, as a liquid, OLEAMULS® W/O requires less energy during processing (cold processing). It is easy to use and effective at dispersing pigments and sun filters.

Oleamuls W/O is extremely well tolerated by the skin and thus very interesting for the formulation of baby care products. It decreases the TEWL and has a regenerative and protective effect on the natural skin barrier.
