Description: Polawax consists of Cetearyl Alcohol, PEG-150 Stearate, Polysorbate 60, and Steareth-20. It mirrors the properties of Cetyl Alcohol while promoting the thickening features of Stearyl Alcohol. It is an effective emulsifier suited for the preparation of cosmetic oil / water emulsions. It can also be used to increase the thickness of formulations, eliminating the need for use of additional ingredients. It works well as a sole emulsifier, thickener and stabilizer in an emulsion. Examples include creams, lotions, body butters, conditioners, face cleansers and baby products.
Usage: Polawax is recommended for o/w emulsions – creams,lotions, lotion bars, baby creams and lotions, facial care and body care. Polawax can be used in anhydrous skin care scrubs and body polish to improve rinsability.
