Polawax™ GP-200

Polawaxes are general purpose emulsifying waxes. They are stable in the presence of metal ions, heat (autoclavable) and over a wide pH range. Due to their versatility Polawaxes can be used in skin systems, producing emulsions with excellent texture and stability. In skin care products the formation of liquid crystals within the emulsion promotes ‘time release’ hydration, and also functions as a slow release delivery mechanism for actives. Recommended topical usage levels of 2-25%. The version of this product manufactured in Brazil (BR) is not intended for pharmaceutical applications. For more information on product availability manufactured in other regions, please contact our sales office.
