About This Product

Natural Olive Emulsifying Wax (Olivem 1000)

Natural Olive Emulsifying Wax is a preservative-free and non-ionic wax derived from olive oil. It is an excellent emulsifier for beginners. It is easy to use and creates stable emulsions with a silky texture and excellent spreadability.

To enhance the viscosity and stability of emulsions, it is advisable to use a stabiliser like xanthan gum. We suggest trying out a mixture of gums, including acacia gum, as various types of gums affect the texture of the skin and the overall look of the formula.

Soapiness can be decreased by adding a small amount of fatty alcohols such as Cetyl alcohol, Cetearyl alcohol and Brassica alcohol to the formula, which also increases the formulation stability. Additionally, you can also use oils that have a light skin feel or fast-absorbing oils such as jojoba oil and grapeseed oil to further reduce soapiness.

Natural Olive Emulsifying Wax is PEG-Free and complies with natural and organic certifying bodies, such as ECOcert and Cosmos. PEG is an acronym for polyethylene glycol, an ingredient widely used in cosmetics, often present in emulsifiers, that does not comply with certification for natural and organic products.
