Oliv-Wax is an highly lipophilic (oil loving) active emollient, very similar to human sebum. Oliv-Wax is a multipurpose emollient totally 100% obtained from ultra-refined Pure Olive Oil. It is an excellent stabiliser and co-emulsifier for high quality cosmetics as it contains up to 60% vegetal lipids (100% Olive). Oliv-Wax has a long shelf life, stable for up to 5 years, so virtually no oxidation issues.
Oliv-Wax exhibits excellent spreadability, contributing a light touch and gentle skin feeling properties both in hair and skin care products. Oliv-Wax is also suitable as a co-conditioning agent, improving both the silkiness and the overall manageability of hair.
Oliv-Wax is considered as a moisturising agent, showing outstanding moisturising properties and a unique silky texture even when used at low dosage level (1 - 3%). Oliv-Wax is higihly stable to oxidation and has a long shelf life, the melt point is approximately 55° C which allows substitution for waxy products such as beeswax.
