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.

I am impressed. I placed an order on Monday morning, by that afternoon I already had a UPS confirmation for pick up in my emailbox! Lotioncrafter not only offers the most amazing ingredients that makes any formulator's mouth water but it has fast shipping to boot. I am glad I discovered this company.

I am new at making lotion and Jen has been so helpful and courteous with all my questions and the shipping time was incredibly fast! Thank you for all you do...your customer service is fantastic!
Amy Irons

I have ordered from LotionCrafters several times and been more than happy each time. Shipping was very fast, the order was perfect each time, and everything was wonderfully well packed - nothing has ever leaked or been damaged in transit. I will order from LC as long as I am making some of my own products - could not be happier with the service, products or company!

This is a company that takes its business seriously. I had a question about a raw material that I was unfamiliar with and Jen addressed the issue with courtesy, efficiency, and expertise. I have been impressed enough to confidently buy any product offered knowing that they have already addressed any issues a consumer might have. Lotioncrafter is to be the first site I search for desired materials. Thank you, Jen.
