Eumulgin SG
CAS No. 38517-23-6

Eumulgin SG is a naturally sourced, strong, anionic oil-in-water emulsifier that contains no ethoxylated ingredients. It shows outstanding compatibility with organic and inorganic electrolytes, like Aloe Vera, various actives, and UV filters. It works well with water soluble ingredients such as hydrolyzed proteins, with oil soluble ingredients such as vegetable oils, esters, waxes, and silicones, and up to 2% sodium chloride. It can be combined with other emulsifiers, polymers (such as Sodium Carbomer, Sepimax ZEN, and Sepinov EMT10).

Eumulgin SG offers good viscosity at low concentrations (0.25%), starting at around 7500 mPa.s, while concentrations of 2.0% offer viscosity of over 10,000 mPa.s. The viscosity remains stable over time.

Eumulgin SG supports the formation of small droplets, which increase stability, and lamellar gels, which stabilize some actives while extending the release of other, soil soluble actives, offer good moisturizing, and suspend pigments or powders. Lamellar gels are also low in skin irritation potential, making lotions made with Emulgin SG suitable for people with sensitive skin or allergies.

Formulating with Eumulgin SG

  • For greater stability, pair with another emulsifier, a high HLB emulsifier like Ceteareth-20 (HLB 15.2), Polysorbate 60 (HLB 14.9), Steareth-21, or a low HLB emulsifier like Glyceryl Stearate (HLB 3.8), or Cetearyl Alcohol (weak).
  • For a thick lotion or cream, start with 1.0% Eumulgin SG and up to 5% cetearyl alcohol in the heated oil phase of your product.
  • For a thinner product, start with 0.25% Eumulgin SG and 2.5% cetearyl alcohol in the heated oil phase of your product.
  • For a thin lotion, use 0.5% Eumulgin SG with 1% Glyceryl Stearate
  • For a much thicker cream use 1.0% Eumulgin SG with 3.75% Glyceryl Stearate.
  • When making lotions, heat both phases to 75°- 80°C (165° - 176°F), then add the oil phase to the water phase while mixing. Add the cool down phase at 40°C (104°F). The heating phase is vital to produce lamellar gels.

0.25 - 2.0%.

Our Customers Say...
I'm exploring making lotions, creams, & balms to add to my line of CP soaps. Lotioncrafter is the best! Nice selection of ingredients and tools, very good prices, smaller quantities available for my test batches, excellent service. And love the customer reward points too!

I can't say enough about Lotion Crafter - not only is their shipping and turn around time AMAZING - their customer service is out of this world. Any questions - they are there for you with friendly knowledgeable answers! Thank you so much for all your hard work!
Rebecca Holland, (Holland Homestead Farm)

I am new to lotion making and was having a hard time figuring out how to use Liquid Germall Plus at the right percentages. I called Jen and she gave me the most informative answer to my question that I've ever received from a company like this. I am very pleased with Lotioncrafter and I will definitely be a return customer.
JaLeigha Williams, (I Am Lov'leigh)

My biggest dilemma is that I live in Hawaii and finding reputable and affordable suppliers is near impossible, and once you locate one the shipping is out of this world ($50+ for shipping alone normally); when I found your website I was hopeful. Not only did you have the refined Shea Butter I was looking for, but you had everything else too! And the shipping was VERY affordable. I received my order 1 day sooner than I expected it (and shipping to Hawaii normally takes longer than shipping 'locally' within the continental US). I couldn't be more pleased with everything that you have to offer. I will definitely be ordering again, you have a customer for life!

I've been swinging my hair all day thanks to the silk amino acid product! This isn't the first time I've had amazing results using it, but I don't always get super shiny and flexible hair immediately after a henna treatment. My hair is shoulder length and relaxed. but I'll be able to postpone my next chemical treatment thanks to the SAA. I'll be ordering the largest size since the shelf life is a year. I'll probably try the argan oil too thanks to someone's review. :-)
