More information about Emulsiphos

  • Based on vegetable, renewable feedstock

  • The combination with a plant based lipid component facilitates the ability of dispersion, both in the oil or aqueous phase and inhibits foam formation (compared to sole Potassium Cetyl Phosphate)

  • Bioinspired molecular structure promotes the ability to form liquid crystalline structures similar to skin lipids
