Glyceryl Stearate SE is a plant-derived emulsifier ideal for oil-in-water emlusions.
Our Glyceryl Stearate SE, where SE stands for âself emulsifyingâ, is derived from coconut and olive oil, not palm oil. It is the esterification of stearic. This Glyceryl Stearate SE can be used alone, whereas the standard Glyceryl Stearate (without the SE) generally needs 2 other co-emulsifiers.
Made from a pure esterfication of stearic acid with glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate is one of the most broadly utilized emulsifiers in cosmetic formulations. It slows loss of water on skin helping with TEWL. Helps to reduce the greasiness of oils in some products and is also a great co-emulsifier. Best with water/oil emulsions.
