Oliwax LC
CAS No. 540-10-3; 26266-57-9; 223706-40-0

Oliwax LC is a vegetable Liquid Crystal promoter designed to stabilize oil-in-water emulsions and to improve the texture of emulsions. As a Liquid Crystal promoter, it is able to re-organize the emulsion's microscopic structure, acting as an emulsion stabilizing agent. The lamellar liquid crystals produce several bi-layers that enrobe the oil droplets, producing an energy layer preventing coalescence.
Oliwax LC provides the final product with sebum-control benefits due to an advanced technology which modifies the fatty acid group of the long carbon atom chains from olive oil (C16-C22) to obtain an oil-in-water dispersible system. It provides skin-hydration and a unique texture due to the high water content of the liquid crystalline structure (water incorporated between several bilayers). It may influence positively the delivery of active ingredients to the skin. It can enhance the efficacy of make-up removing formulations when compared with standard oil-in-water emulsions. Oliwax LC has also been shown to improve the efficiency of the final SPF value in skin care products containing physical sun filters due to the presence of the lamellar phase in the emulsion.

A car drove off the Anacortes Ferry Dock about 9:45AM this morning and emergency crews are there in a search and recovery effort. Service to and from Orcas Island is expected to be suspended for many more hours. This will delay UPS and Mail shipments by a day as these services will miss connections on the mainland. We appreciate your understanding of this situation beyond our control. Please keep the occupants of the vehicle in your thoughts and prayers.

Our Customers Say...
Just got my first order- in just 2 days- and I can't wait to use my new ingredients. Fantastic, fast service.

I love lotioncrafters! I have only had two orders and their customer service is the most professional I have encountered! The day I ordered the product shipped! Superior products at the best price and very fair shipping!!! I am thrilled to find them and plan to order again very soon. Truly there is no ther place one need to order from, this is top notch, professional and ethical company! I think Jen is the owner and when I had questions promptly and professionally answered them! A plus! And i have ordered supplies from many places, there is no comparision!
sarah stout

I absolutely LOVE the customer service and QUICK turnaround this company provides. The products are top-notch, and the prices are excellent. I can't say enough good things about Lotioncrafter!
Robyn Gerard

I turned a bright shade of chartreuse, not merely light pink when I received what I ordered. The gifts I received, to make my concocting more pleasurable, were quite a surprise & a delight. I have NEVER received anything free from ANY other skin stuff supplier, even from that big one, the one who name rhymes with Sinew Bidirections!!
I highly recommend this company for our skin concocting needs.
Margaret

This is a company that takes its business seriously. I had a question about a raw material that I was unfamiliar with and Jen addressed the issue with courtesy, efficiency, and expertise. I have been impressed enough to confidently buy any product offered knowing that they have already addressed any issues a consumer might have. Lotioncrafter is to be the first site I search for desired materials. Thank you, Jen.
Laura F.
