Makeit EasyCream stable self-emulsifying wax – an optimized blend of glyceryl stearate and nonionic PEG ester. Co-Emulsifier for W/O and O/W emulsions. Modifies viscosity and improves stability of emulsion. It forms highly stable oil-in-water emulsions with excellent appearance and feel. It is often used with cetearyl alcohol or other fatty alcohols (as thickeners) in formulations!

Glyceryl stearate, Polyoxyethylene stearate
Self-emulsifying emulsifier blend for highly stable and elegant oil-in-water emulsions with great skin feel does not require the aid of other emulsifiers, provides excellent appearance & feel, has also thickening & solubilizing properties (stabilizes essential oils).
RECOMMENDED USE RATE:
1-6% For external use only. (Up to 25% for hair products)
All kinds of cosmetics requiring emulsification as lotions, creams, gels
While some self-emulsifiers can thicken a lotion made without butters, fatty acid or alcohol waxes, or water phase thickeners like xanthan gum, Makeit EasyCream will not. The job of an emulsifier is to combine oil in water in a stable mixture and this Makeit EasyCream does very well.
For a thick texture you need to use thickener like xanthan gum, butter, etc…
TIP: Makeit EasyCream is ideal for creating buttery formulations when combined with fatty alcohols and water-phase thickeners.

HOW TO USE
Heat the glyceryl stearate & Peg 100 to 60c – 70c within the oil stage of your formulations. Ensure the glyceryl stearate & Peg 100 is fully dissolved into your oil stage (use agitation if required) in order to minimize the risk of graininess in your final formulation.
An emulsifier is an ingredient that breaks the surface tension between the oil and water – a tension so great these two liquids don’t want to mix – and brings them together. The water attaches to the hydrophilic or water loving head of the emulsifier, while the oil attaches to the lipophilic or fat loving tail. If the oil is surrounded by the emulsifier to create a ball or micelle that floats in a sea of water, this is an oil-in-water lotion because the larger phase is the water. If the water was in the micelle, it would be a water-in-oil recipe because the oil is the larger phase.
