An optimized blend of plant-derived emulsifiers and stabilizers, Polawax GP-200 is a self-emulsifying wax for oil-in-water emulsions, creating creams or lotions with excellent texture and stability. It is a mild ingredient that remains stable in the presence of metal ions and over a wide range of pH and temperature. In skincare products, Polawax GP-200 forms liquid crystals in the emulsion, which promotes "time-release" hydration and functions as a slow-release delivery mechanism for actives.
