HallStar® EGMS

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Hallstar in-cosmetics global 2019
Glycol stearate. Acts as a biodegradable bodying agent, co-emulsifying agent, emollient, pearlizing agent and thickener. Is the esterification product of triple pressed-grade stearic acid and ethylene glycol. It is a mixture of about equal proportions of mono- and di- ester. Its effectiveness as an opacifier and pearlizing agent is due to its near insolubility in aqueous systems. Utilized at a level of 1% to 2% in cream and lotion (O/W emulsion) products, will contribute body, opacity and a soft velvety feel. Higher levels (up to 10%) can impart additional body, bringing the product towards a stiff paste consistency. Used in bath additives, facial cleansers, facial color cosmetics, facial skin care, foot care, hair colorants, hand & body care, liquid handsoaps, nail care, shampoos, shaving products, shower gels/body washes and styling aids.

Hansen Solubility Parameters

[16.1, 3.5, 8.5]
[δD - Dispersion force interactions, δP - Polar force interactions, δH - Hydrogen bond force interactions]

Please note, these HSP values are estimations. It is based upon the “like seeks like” principle. It splits an ingredients interactions into three parameters; δD (Dispersion force interactions), δP (Polar forces interactions) and δH (Hydrogen bond force interactions). Hansen Solubility Parameters can help you find a wide range of products that are predicted to be compatible with HallStar® EGMS. A practical determination of these HSP values would provide higher certainty. Learn More.
