April 2017 - I have 200gm in stock.
This item is now indent only for Amor as it's imported stock, however we buy Megasperse 1402 by the 25kg sack.
Cetearyl Alcohol (and) Ceteareth 20
This vegetable (coconut & palm oil) derived wax is used as an emulsifier which blends oils and water together for making creams. It is a carefully balanced combination of selected fatty alcohols and polyethylene glycol esters.
Physically it is a white, hard wax (free flowing pellets) which forms non ionic, oil/water emulsions of good stability and colour.
It is an ideal base for creams and ointments. The emulsions that it forms are very stable, tolerant of pH and dissolved electrolytes, that is compatible with a wide range of additives, such as emollients and cleansing oils. Consistency is controllable by varying the water content of the emulsion.
This wax is the first wax I ever used for cream making and was a more affordable choice for everyone starting out, however we now have the Megasperse (a far superior product to work with) at a better price so have switched over to it. It can be used as the main emulsifying system in a wide range of cosmetics and toiletries, such as hand creams, day creams, skin lotions, cleansing creams, hair conditioners, etc. It may be used along with an emollient or a cleansing oil such as glycerin or a vegetable oil.
USAGE: Approximately 4-5% of your formulation. Use in the Oil Phase.
If you are a retail manufacturer looking for more stock due to being unable to change your labeling, then please contact us and we'll advise you on your options. Otherwise, we recommend the Megasperse Emulsifying Wax for everyone else.
