Emulium Dolcea MB, Gattefossé’s latest natural O/W emulsifier is derived from the wax butter technology patented by the French supplier.
“The composition of Emulium Dolcea MB has been finely tuned to provide optimal performance alongside natural gelling agents and emollients. It builds exceptionally stable emulsions that present smooth white textures with immediate and long-lasting moisturizing power (up to 48 hours),” says Gattefossé.
The result, according to the company, it is “the most advanced and robust” O/W emulsifier of their natural range.
According to Gattefossé, formulations containing Emulium Dolcea MB possess a strong sensory signature characterised by extreme softness.
To facilitate its use in the lab and in manufacturing, Emulium Dolcea MB is presented in an innovative form of hydrated pellet that can be added to the aqueous or oil phase.
“The composition of Emulium Dolcea MB has been designed to make it easy to use in all situations. Every component of this emulsifier plays a critical role to ensure stability. In formulation, it immediately stabilises the oil-water interface but also deploys in the aqueous and oil phases to both bring support to the emulsion and give a recognisable sensory impact,” said Vincent Hubiche, Global Applications Manager at Gattefossé.
In order to assess the performances of Emulium Dolcea MB, Gattefossé has formulated many different kinds of products, from light fluid lotion to high oil-content rich butter, in conditions known to challenge stability.
“The textures obtained are not only robust, they also surprise by their extreme softness and by a moisturizing capacity that is immediately perceptible to the user,” highlighted Flora Bollon, Product Leader at Gattefossé.
Natural and biodegradable
COSMOS approved, Emulium Dolcea MB can be used in organically certified, vegan and readily biodegradable formulations.
“In cosmetics, we all know that naturalness and biodegradability are no longer just a trend, but a matter of responsibility. However, formulating fully natural emulsions is not that simple. Emulium Dolcea MB has been developed to make formulation of natural cosmetics effortless, with a composition carefully chosen to contribute towards biodegradability,” she added.
in-cosmetics Global Awards
Gattefossé’s Emulium Dolcea MB has been awarded bronze, ex-aequo with Clariant’s Velsan Flex, at the in-cosmetics Global Awards in the Best Functional Ingredient category, for its ability to create a wider range of textures, from fluid serum to thick butter in a wide range of applications, such as skincare, suncare, make up and haircare.
