Glyceryl Stearate & PEG 100 Palm Free Emulsifier

Choose Quantity

Glyceryl Stearate (and) PEG-100 Stearate is a very versatile non-ionic oil-in-water emulsifier that creates silky smooth, ultra-light fluffy emulsions.  The blend is 50-50% each.  It is more of an emulsifier than a thickener. As a self-emulsifying, non-ionic emulsifier, it is added to oil phase of formulations.  


We recommend using in combination with consistency-providing substances for the formation of viscosity-enhancing liquid crystalline structures in the external water phase.   Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol or Stearyl Alcohol.  These consistency enhancers form together with the emulsifier lamellar networks in the water phase. The viscosity of the external phase is increased and the emulsion stability is improved.

Perfume, temperature-sensitive substances or electrolyte containing ingredients should be added at 35 - 45 °C. Neutralization of the emulsion is completed at approx. 35 °C

Absolutely a favorite.

A pleasure making lotions with Glyceryl Stearate & PEG 100. Works just as lovely as the write up on it claims. Silky smooth, ultra-light emulsions. My mom loves the lotions made with this emulsifier. Will definitely purchase more soon. Thank you Soap & More for the quick service and all the wonderful ingredients you carry.
