Safe and clinically tested to be hypoallergenic, it provides creams with an excellent spreadability with no soapy effect.

Formulating Notes
While an HLB value has been provided to us by the manufacturer, Olivem 1000's chemistry does not really work based on the HLB system. Its emulsification mechanism is based on liquid crystal formation and therefore the HLB value is not so critcal for this emulsifier.

We find the stability of Olivem 1000 is improved with the addition of a water-phase thickener like our Xanthan Gum (Soft or Clear), used at about 0.2%. 

Consider the use of a co-emulsifier such as Lotioncrafter GMS (Glyceryl Stearate) at 1 - 2% to further improve stability.

Fatty alcohols such as Behenyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol or Cetearyl Alcohol can be added to the oil phase for thickening if needed.

Typical usage rates:

  • Low Viscosity (serums and lotions): 3 - 4%
  • High Viscosity (lotions and creams): 7 - 8%

Appearance:  Off White Flakes
Solubility:  Soluble in oil
SAP Value:  90-120
pH (sol 15%):  5-7
HLB:  9

INCI:  Cetearyl Olivate (and) Sorbitan Olivate

I have been ordering from your company for some time now. I absolutely love the quality and prices of your products. Plus, you don't sacrifice on quality. I am very happy to count myself as one of your customers and I will be ordering from you for years to come. Thank you so much Lotioncrafter!!
Tracy Carlin

I have been ordering from LC for a few months now and I am very pleased with the products. I was especially looking for a good preservative and Optiphen Plus has not disappointed me. I just stared a small lotion business and the preservative is great. I have had no problem. My second go to is the LC E-wax NF, this is a great emulsifier. This has not disappointed me yet. No separation at all in my lotions. Thanks for taking the guess work out of using the correct combination of emulsifiers. I will definitely a repeat customer.
Thanks for helping me in my start up small business. I LOOK FORWARD TO GROWING MY SMALL BUSINESS WITH LC
Wanda, (Maria's Natural Lotion)

I have known Jennifer for many years and she has never steered me wrong. Often when experimenting to find the right product for my eyes I have had to rely on her expertise and not one single time has she not been available to help. You can't go wrong here, thankfully customer service is alive and thriving at Lotioncrafter.
