Ethoxylates & emulsifying waxes
This section displays our extensive selection of ethoxylated fatty esters, ethoxylated lanolin and emulsifying waxes and solubilizers for personal care and cosmetics application.
With our Glymed and Medmuls we provide formulators with a selected range of plant-based ingredients.
Medmuls emulsifiers are generally applicable in all types of personal care and cosmetics formulations, from light lotions to heavier creams and cream-gels. Medmuls are easy-to-apply and impart stability, a silky touch and an excellent after-feel to emulsions.
We will be happy to develop specific ingredients on customers’ demand.
INCI NAME: Almond Oil Glycereth-8 Esters
GLYMED AO is a water-soluble pure Almond Oil, produced by an exclusive trans-esterification process where part of the glyceric fraction of almond oil is substituted by ethoxylated vegetal glycerol. This process results in a superior product with a clear color, a practically undetectable odor, free of impurities and suitable for shampoos, shower gels, transparent aqueous tonics and splashes, mild cleansing foams, liquids gels, make-up-removers and aqueous or hydro alcoholic solutions of any type, at 1-3% concentrations.
GLYMED AO imparts a silky emolliency into water-based hair and skin care products. Even in low concentrations, it can reduce tackiness of glycerin and panthenol (this is especially remarkable in facial tonics and body splashes), both in hair and skin care products.
Concentrations of use can range from 1% to 3%.
INCI NAME: PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate
GLYMED HE is a water-soluble ester, widely used as a super-fatting agent in hair dyes, shampoos and body cleansing products, as it counteracts the excessively degreasing action of primary surfactants.
GLYMED HE does not affect the products’ transparency and it si also used as a solubilizer of water-insoluble substances such as vitamins and essential oils.
Concentration of use ranges from 2% to 10%.
MEDLAN 75 / 75.50
INCI NAME: PEG-75 Lanolin / PEG-75 Lanolin 50%
MEDLAN 75 is soluble in water and is a typical non-ionic surfactant which has emulsifying, solubilizing, wetting and cleansing properties and is an ideal product for soaps and detergents such as shampoos, foam baths, shaving foams.
MEDLAN 75 is a very mild non ionic surfactant which can be used with amphoterics and other mild tensides in the manufacturing of baby shampoos.
MEDLAN 75 can be used as a solubilizer for fats and also as a spreading agent for tar in dermatological products. In small concentrations it also acts as clarifying agent in aqueous systems such as clear shampoos and gels.
MEDLAN 75 is also available as a 50% aqueous solution, MEDLAN 75.50.
