We supply emulsifiers designed for the formulation of O/W water or W/O emulsions for topical applications. Our solutions enable formulation of topical pharmaceutical applications with any kind of APIs, with excellent stability and a very nice sensory profile for good patient compliance.
SEPINEO™ SE 68 is a non-ionic glucolipid (cetearyl alcohol, cetearyl glucoside) designed for the formulation of O/W emulsions for topical applications. This system easily produces very stable oil/water emulsions and is stable over a wide pH range (3-11). In addition, it is highly resistant to electrolytes, and compatible with a large number of excipients, solvents and active ingredients. SEPINEO™ SE 68 emulsifier is an “active” promoter of liquid crystals, forming lamellar bilayers around oil droplets and lamellar phases in the continuous aqueous phase. This ability to form liquid crystals has several benefits:
SEPINEO™ SE 68 can be used to formulate rich, velvety creams with a very good skin tolerance supported by toxicological analyses. Its’ rheofluidifying and moderate thixotropic nature will allow an easy and homogeneous spread. SEPINEO™ SE 68 is in solid, pellet form.
