Lotionpro™ 165
CAS No. 123-94-4; 11099-07-3; 31566-31-1; 85666-92-8, 9004-99-3

Lotionpro™ 165 is a self-emulsifying, acid-stable emulsifier blend which includes glyceryl stearate and polyoxyethylene stearate (PEG-100 stearate). It forms highly stable oil-in-water emulsions with excellent appearance and feel. It is often used with cetearyl alcohol or other fatty alcohols (as thickeners) in formulations.


While some self-emulsifiers (like Emulsifying Wax NF) can thicken a lotion made without butters, fatty acid or alcohol waxes, or water phase thickeners like xanthan gum, Lotionpro™ 165 will not.  The job of an emulsifier is to marry oil in water in a stable mixture and this Lotionpro™ 165 does very well.   Thickening your formulation to the consistency you want is done through the use oil and water phase thickeners, as mentioned above. Lotionpro™ 165 can create lotions that are lighter and fluffier than those made with Emulsifying Wax NF, with a less waxy feel, and it is also able to create buttery formulations when combined with fatty alcohols and water-phase thickeners (see our Body Butter Bliss formulation linked on the Formulary tab).

Formulation Guidelines

Unlike Emulsifying Wax NF, there is no rule of thumb for the amount of Lotionpro™ 165 to use in a given formulation.  We suggest starting with 4% and going up or down from there to achieve the stability and feel you are looking for in your formulation.

Our Customers Say...
I can't believe I didn't find you guys earlier. I have been making skin care for almost 20 years. It has almost been a challenge as a small manufacturer to buy small quantities of high quality skin care ingredients, and yet here you were just across Puget Sound.
George Tindalls

The Shea Nilotica is awesome! Thanks for the sample... that sold me. You have been so helpful and I get so much great information from your site. Your formulary has prompted me to try a few new things. Love it! I'm a new customer but have already referred several people to you. Don't change a thing! I'm counting on you! lol
Karin Vinci, (Balance of Nature Bath & Body)
