Oliwax LC
CAS No. 540-10-3; 26266-57-9; 223706-40-0

Oliwax LC is a vegetable Liquid Crystal promoter designed to stabilize oil-in-water emulsions and to improve the texture of emulsions. As a Liquid Crystal promoter, it is able to re-organize the emulsion's microscopic structure, acting as an emulsion stabilizing agent. The lamellar liquid crystals produce several bi-layers that enrobe the oil droplets, producing an energy layer preventing coalescence.
Oliwax LC provides the final product with sebum-control benefits due to an advanced technology which modifies the fatty acid group of the long carbon atom chains from olive oil (C16-C22) to obtain an oil-in-water dispersible system. It provides skin-hydration and a unique texture due to the high water content of the liquid crystalline structure (water incorporated between several bilayers). It may influence positively the delivery of active ingredients to the skin. It can enhance the efficacy of make-up removing formulations when compared with standard oil-in-water emulsions. Oliwax LC has also been shown to improve the efficiency of the final SPF value in skin care products containing physical sun filters due to the presence of the lamellar phase in the emulsion.

Our Customers Say...
Great service!! Exceptional packing!! A++
Lynne

The cream i have made from your products has been amazing, the effect of Pepha®-Tight is as good as botox, have ordered again, fast delivery to the uk, thank you.
Jackie England UK

My biggest dilemma is that I live in Hawaii and finding reputable and affordable suppliers is near impossible, and once you locate one the shipping is out of this world ($50+ for shipping alone normally); when I found your website I was hopeful. Not only did you have the refined Shea Butter I was looking for, but you had everything else too! And the shipping was VERY affordable. I received my order 1 day sooner than I expected it (and shipping to Hawaii normally takes longer than shipping 'locally' within the continental US). I couldn't be more pleased with everything that you have to offer. I will definitely be ordering again, you have a customer for life!

Super customer service. I have a vision of these these guys constantly clicking the refresh on their computers while wearing running shoes. I consistently get orders shipped the same day! Never any mistakes, and they always read and respond to the special instructions.Really informative website as well.
George Tindall
