Sucro AOF is a self-emulsifying blend based on sucrose ester, glycerin and almond oil. It acts as a gelling agent for esters and other non-polar oils. Sucro AOF forms clear, highly viscous gels that can be converted into stable, non-sticky emulsions by adding water. It is cold and can be processed up to 80°C, provides moisture and convinces with its very good skin compatibility. The gels produced with Sucro AOF are not real gels (networks) - they are emulsions containing densely packed oil droplets - within an external phase of water, glycerine and surfactant.
Application: Bath oils, cleansing formulations, make-up removers, SPA products, masks, peeling gels, massage oils and gels, creams and lotions, lip balms, baby oils.
A simple application:
Add 20g Sucro AOF into a beaker. Set a propeller mixer or hand blender to lowest setting and slowly add 80g almond oil while stirring. A gelatinous substance is formed. Do not "whisk" or homogenize. Do not stir in air. Once the gel is formed, the formulation can be colored or scented.
100% organic, natural emulsifier and oil thickener based on sugar esters.
