Stephenson Personal Care launched Durosoft PG10-CY (among others),a natural solubiliser derived from RSPO palm oil and olive oil. This is the natural alternative to traditionally used solubilisers such as PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil and polysorbate-20.
With its HLB 13-14, this effective, non-ionic ingredient solubilises fragrances, essential oils and lipophilic oils into aqueous systems due to the large polyglyceryl head group.
The mono- and polyglyceryl esters in the newly launched Durosoft range (glyceryl monooelate, glyceryl monostearate, glyceryl monolaurate, polyglyceryl-4-oleate, polyglyceryl-4-laurate, polyglyceryl-10-oleate and polyglyceryl-10-caprylate), are compatible with oil and water phases, there are no deleterious effects on temperature sensitive ingredients. They are electrolyte tolerant and the range covering HLB 4 – 14 can be used in combination with each other to achieve the required HLB of a formulation.
