Simulgreen™ 18-2
EC# 700-891-2

Simulgreen™ 18-2 is natural source, all-in-one liquid crystal emulsifier derived from castor oil and sugar that contains no ethoxylated ingredients. It is a non-ionic oil-in-water emulsifier that can be used to emulsify vegetable oils, silicones, and esters. It can emulsify oils when used as low as 2%, and has good compatibility with electrolytes.

Lotions made with Simulgreen™ 18-2 will be lighter and easier to spread than those made with traditional emulsifying waxes . It prevents the soaping effect found with other emulsifiers, and it is absorbed more quickly by the skin. Actives and lipids can penetrate the skin more easily due to the liquid crystal emulsion’s ability to mimic the lipid bilayers in our stratum corneum, leading to a reduction in transepidermal water loss and increase in moisturization.

It is ECOcert and Natrue approved, and derived from sustainable vegetable sources without the use of solvents. It is considered biodegradable.

Key benefits:

  • Natural source vegetable emulsifier from sustainable sources
  • No soaping effect in creams and lotions
  • ECOcert and Natrue approved
  • Green technology ingredient

Formulating with Simulgreen™ 18-2

When using this emulsifier, a stabilizer like xanthan gum used at 0.5% can increase stability. Fatty alcohols used at low levels (1 to 3%) can also be used to help increase the formation of the liquid crystal structure. Simulgreen™ 18-2 offers a creamy texture as low as 3%, and can be used as low as 2% with vegetable oils. When making a lotion, it is suggested that the water phase be poured into the oil phase, then mixed using a stick blender before moving to a hand mixer.

Our Customers Say...
I just wanted to say thank you to Jen for the fantastic customer service, and for saving me $$$ on my shipping. My order was placed May 6 and it arrived at my door this morning May 12 !!! Thank you so much
Joanna White

I turned a bright shade of chartreuse, not merely light pink when I received what I ordered. The gifts I received, to make my concocting more pleasurable, were quite a surprise & a delight. I have NEVER received anything free from ANY other skin stuff supplier, even from that big one, the one who name rhymes with Sinew Bidirections!!
I highly recommend this company for our skin concocting needs.
Margaret

Admiring the hard work you put into your site and detailed information you offer. It's good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same unwanted rehashed material. Wonderful read!

When running a small business cost is a very big deal. So far no one can match Lotioncrafter's prices, the 2nd most important thing is speed of shipping, I still can get over just how fast I get my orders. They have a life time customer here in Chicago..
Angel Mason, (AKM Holistic)

I LOVE Jennifer! I won't make anything without her input and council. She is very knowledgeable.
