6607H SUNFLOWER HYDROWAX
6607H Sunflower Hydrowax (INCI (EU): Hydrolyzed Sunflower Seed Wax) is an entirely hydrolyzed sunflower seed wax. Due to the hydrolysis it is much more hydrophilic and polar as the regular wax. 6607H comes in light brown colored pellets. It is an outstanding co-emulsifier leading already at low concentrations (0.5–1.5 %) to a very high viscosity in W/O emulsions. Used in O/W emulsions it forms a stabilizing network supporting body, texture and substantivity. Sunflower Hydrowax can also be utilized as opacifier for shampoos and in hair conditioning formulations as alternative to fatty alcohol. 6607H leads to a superb velvety skin feel and is therefore the ideal choice for every cream or lotion. Recommended use level is 0.5–3 %.
