Phytowax® Olive 16L 55

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Sophim
Hydrogenated Olive Oil Cetyl Esters. Phytowax® Olive 16L 55 by Sophim is a non-greasy, vegetable-based emollient wax. It is also used as texturizing agent. It is oil-free and offers silky & velvety feel. It shows good stability against oxidation and unique sensory properties. It penetrates very easily into the epidermis & helps to moisturize and nourish the skin. It helps to restore lipids of the skin thanks to their composition in liquid wax-esters similar to stratum corneum. It can enhance the consistency and creaminess of the formulas. It increases the viscosity of finished product without soap effect. It gives body and structure to the formulations, while bringing them smoothness, melting effect and pleasure. It is an excellent substitute for animal waxes (beeswax) or petroleum waxes (ozokerit, microcrystallin, paraffin wax). Phytowax® Olive 16L 55 is used in make-up, face-, body and hair care applications. It is approved by China and COSMOS. The shelf life of the product is 2 years.
