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.

Eli

I came to Lotioncrafter after spending years, and thousands of dollars, with several suppliers who did not meet the level of what my business needs. I had to jump from one supplier to another, and so on, in an effort to fill a single order. I've known about Lotioncrafter for several years but erroneously believed their prices to be out of my range. How dumb was that?! In truth, Lotioncrafter, has excellent products, and excellent prices. I've also learned that I can expect, and receive, quality products that, so far, I have not found in other suppliers. I trust Jen to see that I receive products that are as advertised and have the quality my customers expect from me. Thank you, Lotioncrafter and Jen, for being there for me and my customers.
Judith, (Prestige Creations)
