Emulsifiers

As water and oil do not mix, emulsifiers are added to creams and lotions to form homogenous mixtures of both. Addition of an emulsifier not only stabilizes the emulsion but also influences the consistency of the formulation. Emulsifiers are used in creams, lotions, sprays and foams and are categorized as oil in water or water in oil. Oil in water emulsifiers keep oil drops packed in water and are used more in moisturizing products; water in oil emulsifiers keep water droplets packed in oil and are used for a fatty feel.
