INCI: Polyglyceryl-3 distearates; glyceryl stearate citrates
O/W Emulsifier
Dosage: 1,5-4,0%.
pH-stable: 3.5 -8.5
HLB: 11
Skinfeel NC approved for Cosmos and certified according to RSPO and Halal. Skinfeel NC is completely based on renewable raw materials. In addition, the emulsifier is particularly suitable for emulsions with a pH value of 3.5 to 8.5 and is very well applicable with organic acids. No polyacrylate based thickeners are required for stabilizing an emulsion with Skinfeel NC; this is a great benefit, especially in the current microplastic debate.
The recommended application concentration is approx. 3.0% in creams and 1.5 -3.0% in lotions. Typical oil phase contents of Skinfeel NC-based emulsions are 15-45% for creams and 10-25% for lotions.  It is also possible to formulate systems with high oil content
(e. g. 50%) on Skinfeel NC basis.  Typical combinations for O/W creams are 2.5 - 4.0% Skinfeel NC with 2.5 - 4.0% consistency enhancers. In most O/W lotions, 2 - 3% Skinfeel NC is sufficient to obtain the desired viscosity and stability profile without additional consistency enhancers.  Skinfeel NC can be used with natural polymeric thickeners such as xanthan gum. It is recommended to combine Skinfeel NC with Xanthan Gum (0.2% for creams and 0.3 to 0.5% for lotions) to optimize the texture and stability of the emulsions. In order to prevent the lamellar structures from being impaired by emulsifiers and consistency enhancers, it is advisable to add xanthan gum emulsions at temperatures below 40 °C. In order to avoid this effect, it is advisable to add xanthan gum emulsions at temperatures below 40 °C.
Skinfeel NC belongs to the group of so-called lipid emulsifiers. Since lipid emulsifiers are optimized for the formation of lamellar structures in O/W emulsions, they have a lower HLB value.  It is recommended to avoid adding the hot water phase to the hot oil phase while stirring. This "reverse" processing is likely to result in the formation of a W/O emulsion (identifiable by its high viscosity). For the preparation of creams and lotions, the oil and water phases should be heated separately to 70 to 80 °C. The oil and water phases should be heated separately. It is recommended to add the hot oil phase to the hot water phase while stirring. The coarsely dispersed pre-emulsion is then homogenized. During the homogenization process, the stirrer must be placed in the water phase to ensure that the oil phase is incorporated into the water phase.  During cooling, a constant horizontal and vertical movement of the emulsion must be ensured. The viscosity of the liquid emulsion increases to a creamy consistency as the consistency enhancers solidify.
Preservation and possible perfuming of the finished product should be carried out at temperatures below 40°C.

The composition of the Skinfeel NC (INCI: Polyglyceryl-3 Distearate; Glyceryl Stearate Citrate) has been optimized in such a way that its application properties are comparable to those of ?Polyglyceryl-3 Dicitrate/Stearate?.
