Structuring agents / co-emulsifiers


Hydrogenated Olive Oil (and) Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil (and) Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil Unsaponifiables

Rheological Modifier for the Lipids
A stabilizing agent derived from olive oil, Oliwax® is a perfect gellifying agent for the oil phase in O/W and W/O emulsions. Its composition makes it ideal for anhydrous systems and make-up formulations. Oliwax® creates a network with the components of the oil phase protecting them from oxidation. Palm free and COSMOS approved.


Sorbitan Olivate

Natural Multifunctional Structuring Agent
Olivem® 900 is a PEG-free co-emulsifier, an ivory waxy solid in flake form with melting range 65 – 75°C, for w/o and w/s systems. Olivem® 900 is designed to improve the dispersion of powders in decorative formulations and of inorganic UV attenuating agents in sun care formulations, and contribute to waterproofing by improving the resistance to wash off. It is COSMOS-validated. The recommended use levels for Olivem® 900 are 5 – 7.5% in w/o emulsions and foundations as the sole emulsifier, 1 – 10% as a powder dispersant or lipogel agent, 1 – 3% as a functional lipid, 1 – 2% as an o/w co-emulsifier, and 2 – 3% as a w/o or w/s co-emulsifier.


Cetearyl Alcohol (and) Cetyl Palmitate (and) Sorbitan Palmitate (and) Sorbitan Oleate

Biomimetic Multifunctional Co-Emulsifier
Olivem® VS Feel is a secondary emulsifier engineered to help sustain and structure o/w systems, increasing viscosity and stability while imparting pleasant sensorial and physiological benefits to formulations. Olivem® VS Feel is an olive lipids-inspired ingredient that is able to promote the creation of liquid crystal structures. Thanks to its special chemical composition and physical structuring, it acts in a biomimetic manner, interacting with the human hydrolipidic film to promote proper barrier function, skin hydration and a pleasant skin feel. Olivem® VS Feel was created to support green chemistry philosophy, meeting COSMOS requirements with cutting-edge technology, making it possible to create products in line with the latest cosmetic market trends.


Cetyl Palmitate (and) Sorbitan Palmitate (and) Sorbitan Olivate

Stabilizing Agent and Liquid Crystal Promoter Able to Re-Organize Emulsion Structure
Oliwax® LC MB is a stabilizing agent and liquid crystal promoter that is able to reorganize emulsion structure on a microscopic level, It is recommended for use in innovative and sophisticated cosmetic products, either in emulsions (in water or oil phase) or anhydrous systems. The unique after-feel it creates is a result of the high water content of the liquid crystalline structure formed when in contact with the skin. Oliwax® LC MB is a waxy solid in flake form at 20°C (melting range 50 – 60°C) and is COSMOS-validated. Its recommended use level is 1% – 3%.
