INCI: Arachidyl Alcohol (and) Behenyl Alcohol (and) Arachidyl Glucoside
Montanov 202 is a popular and versatile emulsifying agent used in the formulation of cosmetic and personal care products. It is a blend of two natural ingredients: Cetearyl Alcohol and Cetearyl Glucoside.
Cetearyl Alcohol is a fatty alcohol derived from vegetable sources such as coconut oil, palm oil, or soy. It acts as an emollient and gives a smooth, creamy texture to formulations. Cetearyl Glucoside, on the other hand, is a natural emulsifier obtained from glucose and fatty alcohols. It helps to stabilize the emulsion and prevent separation of the oil and water phases.
When these two ingredients are combined in Montanov 202, they create a stable and efficient emulsion that can be used in a variety of products, including lotions, creams, and serums. Montanov 202 is particularly useful in formulations with a high oil phase, as it helps to create a light and non-greasy texture.
One of the advantages of Montanov 202 is its ability to enhance the skin’s natural moisture barrier. This means that it helps to keep the skin hydrated and protected from environmental stressors, making it an ideal ingredient for moisturizing products.
Montanov 202 is also a safe and non-toxic ingredient, and it is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is also easy to use, as it can be added to the water or oil phase of a formulation and mixed until fully emulsified.
Overall, Montanov 202 is a reliable and effective emulsifying agent that is widely used in the cosmetic and personal care industry. Its ability to create stable and lightweight emulsions, while also providing moisturizing benefits, makes it a popular choice among formulators.
Produces very white emulsions unless using coloured oils, and has a long lasting moisturizing effect.
How to Use Montanov 202
As a rule of thumb use the emulsifier at 25% of the amount of oil in your recipe. So if your formulation has 12% oil content use 3% emulsifier. Add to the heated oil phase.
We recommend using a water phase thickener to aid stability and increase the thickness of the cream. Combine with Montanov 68 if you want a slightly denser cream. If you want a richer, thicker cream, rather than increase the amount of emulsifier, add 1% cetyl alcohol to your oil phase,
