Properties

An emulsifier is a type of surfactant typically used to keep emulsion(mixtures of immiscible fluids) well dispersed. Emulsifiers typically have a hydrophobic (water-hating) and a hydrophilic (water-liking) end. They can be used for the manufacture of water-in-oil emulsion preparations. They provide excellent emulsion stabilization, thickening effects, excellent skin compatibility, and making the skin feel smoother.
