Emulsifying Wax - Olive Oil Derived
Olive Oil Emulsifier is a great emulsifier for natural creams, milks and lotions. It is effective at levels from 3% and can be used up to 10% if a richer cream is required. The emulsifier gives light, pleasant feeling emulsions with an elegant white finish and due to its high percentage of olive oil fats, it has a good affinity and mildness to the skin.
