Home Cosmetic Science Talk Formulating General “Best” Low HLB Emulsifier

  • “Best” Low HLB Emulsifier

    Posted by georgetedder on June 1, 2015 at 2:34 am

    Does anyone have suggestions for an odorless (or nearly so) low HLB emulsifier. I really really like Glyceryl stearate SE, but sometimes, if less than one percent fragrance is added, I detect a rather unpleasant sweet odor which comes from this emulsifier. Looking for something with similar sensorials, if possible, but am willing to reformulate for something “odorless.”  Things easily available to me are Oleth-2, Glyceryl Oleate, Sorbitan Stearate/Oleate. Any favorites or particular suggestions? Thanks!
