INCI: Glycerin, Prunus amygdalus dulcis (Sweet almond) Oil, Sucrose Laurate, Aqua
Sucro AOF is a self-emulsifying blend based on sucrose ester, glycerine 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 can be processed cold and at temperatures up to 80°C, moisturises and has excellent skin compatibility.
The gels produced with Sucro AOF are not true gels (networks) - they are emulsions containing densely packed oil droplets - within an outer phase of water, glycerin and surfactant.
Sucro AOF is a 100% organic, natural emulsifier and oil thickener based on sugar esters.
Viscosity in mPa.s at 20°C.: 3500
Sucro AOF can be used for bath oils, cleansing formulations, make-up removers, SPA products, masks, peeling gels, massage oils and gels, creams and lotions, lip balms and baby oils.
A simple application:
Pour 20g of Sucro AOF into a beaker. Set a propeller mixer or a hand mixer to lowest speed. Better still, add 80g of almond oil slowly by hand with the plastic spatula, drop by drop, and spread. A gel-like subtance will form. Do not "whisk" or homogenise. Do not stir in air. This requires time and patience. Once the gel is formed, the formulation can be enhanced with colour or fragrance.
