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 critical 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

Jackie England UK

I've placed two orders so far and am really impressed. You carry the high end products I am looking for at the best prices and your shipping is super fast. I'm definitely a loyal customer! Thanks!

I LOVE Lotioncrafter! First of all you have the ingredients that I need and information on all of those ingredients. Second of all, even though your facility is a LONG way from me in Texas, my order is processed and shipped so fast that I can get my things faster than I can get them from other companies that are much closer to me. I love the rectangular shaped bottles that are used for packaging the ingredients because that shape maximizes my limited storage space. Great quality and great service! Thank you!
Pat Tyson, (Pitterpat Skincare, LLC)
