Olivem 900 is a natural based PEG-free non-ionic water-in-oil emulsifier developed from natural olive chemistry. It is a low HLB emulsifier useful as a co-emulsifier in formulations. It functions well in the preparation of anhydrous systems and water-in-oil emulsions. When mixed with esters and oils it forms a gel that can vary from firm to pourable, depending on the lipid and its polarity. Trials with 30% Olivem 900 to 70% lipid produced stable gels that were easily spreadable, with a pleasant, dry but emollient feel. Altering the ratio alters viscosity and the gelling action is maintained down to 10% Olivem 900 to 90% lipid. Incorporation of powders and pigments into the gels is also possible, making it an excellent structuring agent for color cosmetics. The addition of water to these gels forms water-in-oil emulsions.
Olivem 900 provides wash-off resistance and acts as a very effective dispersant for any kind of powder. It is designed for pigment dispersion, providing multifunctional benefits in addition to superior sensory properties. It can enhance skin-care and make-up formulations with its silky and ultra-light feel. With its wash off resistance, it can all "long lasting" activity and a lip moisturizing activity in lipstick formulations. Olivem 900 is a functional lipid due to its double chemical nature, lipophilic part (olive's fatty acids, and its hydrophilic part (polialcoholic group of sorbitan).
