I am looking for a replacement for an emulsifier called Heliofeel INCI Glyceryl Stearate Citrate (and) Polyglyceryl-3 Stearate (and) Hydrogenated Lecithin. Can you please help me with this?

  • Heliofeel is available from Lucas Meyer Cosmetics. Generally their minimum orders are quite reasonable for small scale production. For smaller quantities, Trulux can be useful if you are willing to pay shipping from Australia.
