This natural emulsifier is so versatile - from sprayable serums to co-emulsifying lotions - we love how much oil it can hold!
Cyclodextrin, Sorbitol, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate
Meet our cold process, 100% naturally derived emulsifer, Natural Emulsifier 146. This O/W (oil-in-water) emulsifier can create a range of textures from sprays to lotions, and can emulsify many vegetable oils, even in formulas with up to 60% oil.
Cyclodextrin and Sorbitol are produced through enzymatic breakdown of large sugar-based molecules. Polyglyceryl-3 is produced by joining multiple glycerin molecules together, where it is then joined to isostearic acid through chemical synthesis. The chemical reactions are considered natural.

Starches from potatoes, maize and wheat are broken down to produce cyclodextrin and sorbitol.
Multiple glycerin molecules join together to form polyglyceryl-3, then isostearic acid is added.
The resulting crystals are shaped into an easy to use, homogenous powder.
