Benefits of using Phytomulse™ Products:
• High Performance Emulsifiers
• Improves Stability
• High Compatibility
• Aesthetic Modifier
Phytomulse™, a line of
high-performance emulsifiers developed that will allow you to design your own distinct
emulsifying system from a selection of feedstock:
Almond, Amaranth, Chlorella, and Coconut. The Phytomulse™ Product Line allows
customization and consistency within a product line, while capitalizing on
natural and sustainable trends in the personal care and cosmetic market. These complete
emulsifying systems also offer cost savings to the formulating chemist.
emulsifying system would require the use of additional stabilizing orgelling
agents, however, neither are required when using a product from the Phytomulse™
Product Line. This will, of course, allow chemists to develop economic
formulations while also reducing production time, freeing warehouse space, and
easing raw material management- Efficiency at its best!
itself is a blend of cetearyl alcohol and glyceryl stearate which works in conjunction
with the properties specific to the feedstock selected. Both the cetearyl alcohol
and glyceryl stearate are sourced from sustainably harvested and manufactured coconut
palm oil. In addition to their emulsifying properties, these components also provide
functional benefits when added to a formula. Cetearyl alcohol increases opacity,
viscosity, and emolliency. Glyceryl stearate enhances hydration by improving the
skin’s barrier function, with the added bonus of improving product stability by
increasing freeze resistance and reducing water evaporation.
a type of freshwater algae rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
including B vitamins, iron, carotenoids, and vitamin C. Chlorella is also
packed with amino acids, which, as we know, are the building blocks of
collagen. In Japan, herbal remedies to treat many different illnesses include Chlorella vulgaris because it
contains the highest chlorophyll concentration of any plant. Chlorophyll
contains wound healing and
tissue regeneration properties and acts like a natural antibiotic
can be useful in treating stretch marks or sun damaged skin due to its abundant
amino acid content. Amino acids have the ability to restructure and smooth the
skin’s surface. This skin conditioning and protecting agent is believed to have
powerful anti-aging benefits, mainly due to the fact that it is a rich source
of carotenoids- a family of nutrients that, when ingested, deposit into the
skin and protect it from the harmful effects of UV rays. In addition, Chlorella vulgaris is
an excellent source of methyl-cobolamine, the most absorbable form of vitamin
B12- useful in maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin
Phytomulse™ Product Line is a blend of non-ionic surfactants intended to
simplify and differentiate emulsionformulation.
Phytomulse™ is especially useful in stabilizing emulsion formulations that have
a high oil phase.
that contain 30% oil or more are very problematic to stabilize in an O/W
emulsions. The Phytomulse™ Product
Line is able to efficiently and effectively stabilize this phase due to the
combination of key surfactants
the formation of unique liquid crystals. Any Phytomulse™ product should be added
to the oily phase of an
and heated to <80C. These emulsifying systems are compatible with most gums
and polymers, which
be used to adjust the texture of the formula itself.
Phytomulse™ Product Line is a complete emulsifying system that provides an
opportunity for customization and
consistency within your line of products. The Phytomulse™ emulsifying system is
compatible with a wide
of emollients including: natural oils, silicones, esters, and hydrocarbons.
Furthermore, in formulations the Phytomulse™
line creates an aesthetically pleasant, full-bodied texture, satiny-smooth rub
in, and sinuous end feel.
can be formulated over a wide range of viscosities which have rheologies from
flowing fluids to thick, viscous
creams. The Phytomuse™ Product Line can be used with polymeric, thickening
agents, natural gums and
viscosity modifiers and stabilizers. When an emulsion incorporates the
Phytomulse™ Product Line it produces an
immediate improvement in the sensorial aesthetics of a product and increases
spreadability from initial contact
complete absorption. The response is an elegant, soft sensation that persists
for hours after applying the
product. These emulsions are also very fine in texture, amplifying their
ability to provide a luxurious, shiny
on the skin.
