PEG-free alternative to Olivem 300 (Olive oil PEG-7 esters)?
Hello! I have been searching high and low for some time now for an appropriate natural solubilizer and my head is spinning already. Some fresh input would be welcome.Now to the question: I would like to make a hydrophilic oil base for preparation of a mild and natural wash emulsion (upon addition of water).I found a similar product that contains the following ingredients:soybean oilolive oil PEG-7 esterszea mays oilprunus amygdalus dulcis oilsesamum indicum seed oillavandula hybrida oillavandula angustifolia oilrosa damascena flower oilI want to use other oils (like macadamia, sunflower..) and skip the EOs but that is not of importance I guess. My main question is with what could I substitute the olive oil PEG-7 esters in this formulation? The reason I want to replace it is because I would like to use a PEG-free component. It should be as “natural” as can get while being efficient, safe, mild, liquid and odourless. The final product should remain liquid and clear. This is to be used for a product for babies and children.In my own search I found the following products that I think could work, but have no experience with them.Lecithin (or isolecithin)Sepiclear G7 (heptyl glucoside)TEGO solve 61 (INCI name:Polyglyceryl-6 Caprylate; Polyglyceryl-3 Cocoate; Polyglyceryl-4 Caprate; Polyglyceryl-6 Ricinoleate)I will be very happy if someone can give me input on this. Thanks a bunch!
