Shea Butter Oleyl Esters. LIPEX® Shea WM™ by AAK is an emollient that combines the moisturizing qualities and other skincare benefits of shea butter with the lighter, more elegant skin feel of esters, making it an ideal complement to other esters and silicones in facial care formulas. The liquid character and a low melting point make it a suitable ingredient for cold processing of creams and lotions. It is an ideal cosmetic ester with an elegant, velvety and light feel on the skin. It is especially suited for men’s care applications, cosmetics for teens, and daily facial care formulas, all of which require a light skin feel without a greasy or oily appearance. It also helps to moisturize the irritated and stressed skin of teenagers and can soothe skin stressed by shaving, making it perfect for men’s skin care lines. The lower gloss of LIPEX® Shea WM™ also contributes to non-oily looking skin. It can be used in both cold and hot processing and is well compatible with all emollient technologies.
