Water and oil do not mix. A mixture of Cetearyl & Sorbitan Olivate is used to ensure that the water and oil in our skin care range mix evenly, like music helps at a prom. Cetearyl & Sorbitan Olivate are mild emulsifiers made using the green chemistry principles, which make these ingredients incredibly safe.
The Green Chemistry Principles cover concepts such as:
The design of processes to maximize the amount of raw material that ends up in the product; The use of safe, environment-benign substances; The design of energy efficient processes; The best form of waste disposal: not to create it in the first place.
Sorbitan Olivate is made from Sorbitol and Olive oil. Sorbitol occurs naturally in many stone fruits & berries from trees of the genus Sorbus or alternatively, it can be made from corn syrup.
