Lotionpro™ 165 Tegocare is a self-emulsifying, acid-stable emulsifier blend which includes glyceryl stearate and polyoxyethylene stearate (PEG-100 stearate). It forms highly stable oil-in-water emulsions with excellent appearance and feel. It is often used with cetearyl alcohol or other fatty alcohols (as thickeners) in formulations.
While some self-emulsifiers (like Emulsifying Wax NF) can thicken a lotion made without butters, fatty acid or alcohol waxes, or water phase thickeners like xanthan gum, Lotionpro™ 165 will not. The job of an emulsifier is to marry oil in water in a stable mixture and this Lotionpro™ 165 Tegocare does very well. Thickening your formulation to the consistency you want is done through the use of oil and water phase thickeners, as mentioned above. Lotionpro™ 165 can create lotions that are lighter and fluffier than those made with Emulsifying Wax NF, with a less waxy feel, and it is also able to create buttery formulations when combined with fatty alcohols and water-phase thickeners.
