Veg-Emulse is a self-emulisfying, proprietory blend of natural emulsifiers that is highly sought after by those wanting to keep their products as natural as possible. Veg-Emulse is particularly suited to children's formulations and those with chemical intolerances.
Veg-Emulse offers fabulous viscosity enhancement, improved stability, and conditioning in all your lotions and creams. Veg-Emulse improves moisturisation, skin feel, and is compatible with most types and classes of ingredients and leaves the skin with a conditioned, and silky smooth after feel.
Based on Acyl Lactylates, which are wonderful for both skin and hair, anionic Lactylates are created through a reaction between the acyl group of fatty acids (ie Almond Oil, Olive Oil etc), and Lactic Acid. Both Fatty Acids and Lactic Acid are natural moisturising factor-constituents found in skin!
Not compatible with Cationics (Conditioning Emulsifier, BTMS & Polyquat, Guar Conditioner etc)
Some customers have reporting Optiphen Plus can thin their emulsions, so if you are inexperienced it might be wise to select a different preservative.
