Packaging: Our powders are packed in water proof zip lock pouches avoid spillage.
Precaution: Olivem 1000 has a maximum recommended oil-phase of ~25% (including the emulsifier). We find the stability of Olivem 1000 is improved with the addition of a water-phase thickener like our Xanthan Gum (Soft or Clear), used at about 0.2%. Consider the use of a co-emulsifier such as (Glyceryl Stearate) at 1 – 2% to further improve stability. Fatty alcohols such as Behenyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol or Cetearyl Alcohol can be added to the oil phase for thickening if needed.
