Phosphate-based emulsifying and conditioning wax that produces stable thixotropic O/W emulsions, allowing rapid active release and localised delivery of active to the skin. The formation of lamellar liquid crystal oleosomes mean that Crodafos CES-based emulsions offer greater versatility compared to more conventional phosphate-based emulsifiers, enabling formulators to create a wide range of elegant and efficacious products that are both cost-effective as well as functional. They exhibit a combination of natural substantivity, greater oil deposition, and shear thinning properties promoting fast targeted release of both oil and water-based actives. Recommended topical usage levels of 5-8%.
