Glyceryl Stearate (GMS) Self Emulsifying (SE) Lotion making Blend
INCI name Glyceryl stearate (and) PEG-100 stearate
Our GMS SE blend is an easy to use self emulsifying blend used to make stable lotions and light, "fluffy" lotions and creams and body butters. It performs the job of emulsifying / blending the oil and water so much easier to help you quickly make a stable lotion or body butter whip, quicker and easier than e-wax and stearic acid. Plus, it also imparts really good feel to the product. Makes a great whipped body butter, and similar products. You'll be wondering why you didn't start making them before!
Functions as a non-ionic opacifier, thickener, and formulation stabilizer, where it also imparts a softer, smoother, feel to your emulsions.
Excellent for making lotions, and creams and fluffy body butter type products easily.
Additionally, Glyceryl Stearate is one of the best choices for thickening and stabilizing, using in combination with the lactylates, where it also functions as an emollient, and giving the emulsion more smoothness.
Glyceryl Stearate SE is all vegetable derived and is EcoCert certified.
