PolyAquol®-2W does not require any co-emulsifiers and is able to emulsify up to 22% oil (at an EC of 3%).
In vitro tests have shown that the emulsifier has a preventive and reparative effect on UV-induced damage to the skin barrier and significantly improves skin hydration.
PolyAquol®-2W is present in waxy flakes, has a melting temperature of about 70° C and remains stable even at salt concentrations of up to 3%. It is also compatible with thickeners such as Amaze XT Polymer or Xanthan. The areas of application for PolyAquol®-2W range from facial and hair care to make-up and baby care.
