Oliwax® is a multipurpose stabilizing lipid derived from ultra refined pure olive oil. It is a highly lipophilic active emollient with outstanding dermatological behavior while also improving the stability of o/w and w/o emulsions as well as anhydrous systems.
Oliwax® exhibits original characteristics of excellent spreadability, imparting very light touch and a gentle skin feel in both hair and skin care products. It provides outstanding moisturizing properties and a unique texture even when used at low dosage levels (1 – 3%). When used as a hair conditioning agent, it improves both the silkiness and overall manageability of the hair. It is delivered safely into the cutaneous mantle and is approved by COSMOS.
The recommended use levels for this product are 2 – 5% in emulsions, 1 – 5% in make-up products as an emollient structuring and oil-gel agent, 1 – 5% in hair care products as a conditioning agent, 1- 4% in w/o emulsions as a stabilizing agent, 1 – 3% in o/w emulsions as an emollient hydrating and moisturizing and stabilizing agent, and 1 – 3% in sunscreens for viscosity stabilization.
