Emulsifying Wax, NF
EWAX109P is a self-emulsifying, low odor, highly stable, and highly compatible Emulsifying Wax. Low concentrations of these waxes will improve the consistency and stability of emulsions. It is a compound of emulsifiers ranging from cetearyl to behenyl alcohol. These are cost effective raw materials that can enhance product stability and provide new textures and consistencies that formulating chemists want. Special blends can be made to incorporate other ingredients into the Emulsifying Waxes. This will produce a multi-functional wax that offers added conditioning, stabilizing, or sunscreen and U.V. absorbing properties in hair care products.
