The composition of the emollient and emulsifier you choose will always influence the viscosity and stability of your cosmetic formulation. But it can also influence the activity and sensory aspects of the formulation.
Akoline – our line of vegetable derived emulsifiers – are high quality products renowned for their mildness and moisturising capacity. Formulating with these natural based emulsifiers is therefore relevant not only for natural skin care products, but also for developing skin care formulations that provide a pleasant, soft and elegant skin feel.
