Montanov emulsifiers causing eye irritation? Cetearyl Alcohol + Coco or Cetearyl Glucoside

ZinkZink Member
Wondering if anyone has experience with this, like the light emulsions they make and that they play well with mineral sunscreen, but if used around the eye it seems creams made with them can migrate through the skin and cause ocular irritation (similar to what you get from cleansers with other glucosides).

Anyone had this experience?

And if, any other liquid crystal emulsifier alternatives? BTMS does not irritate I know, Olivem 1000 could perhaps also work?

    We have used the BASF version of this emulsifier (Emulgade PL68/50 - Cetearyl Glucoside and Cetearyl Alcohol) in a face cream for many years with no reported eye irritation.

    Are you using emollients/oils/esters with a high spreading rate that are allowing the cream to migrate into the eye.

    Have u tried and experienced it personally?
    I hate glucosides in facial cleansers but never had a problem with montanov 68 in creams.
