Laureth-23
CAS No. 68551-12-2

 

Laureth-23 is a high HLB emulsifier used in oil-in-water emulsions. Laureth-23 finds use in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products as a surfactant, emulsifier and solubilizer.  It is particularly useful in some formulations in light of its chemical inertness to hydrolytic decomposition

Laureth-23 is a nonionic surfactant prepared from lauryl alcohol and 23 moles of ethylene oxide. Laureth-23 contains an average of 23 repeating ethylene oxide units.  Small amounts of 1,4-dioxane, a by-product of ethoxylation, may be found in Laureth-23. The potential presence of this material is well known and can be controlled through purification steps to remove it.  Our product has been purified and contains no 1,4-dioxane (0 ppm).

The Cosmetic Ingredient Review has reviewed this ingredient and it is declared safe as used up to 6%.

Formulation Guidelines

While soluble in water, like most emulsifiers, it should be added to the oil phase of your formulation and heated past the melt point of the highest melt point material.  Oil and water phases should be combined at the same temperature.

There has been a breakdown of one of the major ferries that service Orcas Island. The necessary repairs have meant that our Ferry Service is operating on an Emergency Schedule as of Monday, July 17th. This means that our inbound and outbound shipping are affected. The delays the ferry service is experiencing are impacting UPS and the US Post Office shipping, resulting in 1 day additional transit times on all shipments. These service delays are beyond the control of UPS or the Post Office and they will not honor any guarantees re late delivery as a result of this breakdown. We are doing our best to ship your orders as quickly as they are received to insure the least disruption possible. We appreciate your understanding!

Our Customers Say...
I have to admit, the products are well packaged, but the adorableness of the little containers makes me go, "awwww," when I start to formulate.

All cute aside, I love LotionCrafter. I can get products here I have a hard time sourcing at rates I'm willing to pay. I don't want to buy huge amounts of anything when I'm making initial formulations. I want to use small amounts to decide if something should be in my line. I can go small, or huge and that makes me feel confident that I can source what I need in amounts I can purchase.

I can get silicones here I can't find anywhere else and I've made my own primer that's head and shoulders above anything else I've ever purchased for any amount of money.

I am in love and I have large orders planned over the next few months. Thank you.
