Multi-functional and safe
ESTERLAC™ is a range of multi-functional and safe emulsifiers for personal care applications. Its ingredients were invented and patented by the CJ Patterson Company (part of Corbion). ESTERLAC™ emulsifiers bring many unique features to o/w and w/o emulsions. These natural-based emulsifiers form excellent, lamellar-based gel, network emulsions. They are responsible for both the emulsions’ stability and the rheology.
Broad range of solutions
Based on Acyl Lactylates (high HLB surfactants) and Glycerol Mono Stearates (low HLB surfactants), they are truly multi-functional, as alongside emulsifier-functionality.
These products can be used in multiple applications and can act as:
- Skin-feel enhancers
- Skin-penetration enhancers
- Hair conditioners
- Viscosity builders
- Secondary surfactants
Formulation & application
ESTERLAC™ emulsifiers have low levels of free fatty acids and lactate giving them very good hydrolytic stability, which is essential for personal care applications. ESTERLAC™ Perform delivers superior electrolyte and heat stability vs. standard emulsifiers.
Applications of the Corbion ESTERLAC™ range include skin care, facial cleansers, baby care products, hair conditioning formulations, shampoos & body washes, bar soaps and sun screens. For more information or questions about other applications, please contact us.
