Oliwax®
CAS No. 68334-28-1; 8001-25-0

Oliwax® is a multipurpose stabilizing lipid derived from ultra refined pure olive oil. It is a highly lipophilic active emollient with outstanding dermatological behavior while also improving the stability of oil-in-water and water-in-oil emulsions as well as anhydrous systems. 

Oliwax® exhibits characteristics of excellent spreadability, imparting a very light touch and a gentle skin feel in both hair and skin care products. It provides outstanding moisturizing properties and a unique texture even when used at low dosage levels (1 – 3%). When used as a hair conditioning agent, it improves both the silkiness and overall manageability of the hair. It is delivered safely into the cutaneous mantle. Oliwax® is approved by Ecocert.

Oliwax®has excellent reticulating properties and it is able to deliver active ingredients into the skin. Oliwax® is an excellent moisturizing agent with exceptional spreadability and lubricity, and it leaves a rich velvety non-oily feel on the skin while retarding water loss and enhancing the flexibility and suppleness of the skin.

In hair care applications, Oliwax® is able to penetrate down to the scalp and hair follicles and assist in loosening sebum that may build up, leaving hair clean and supple.

Oliwax® is also an excellent rheological modifier for lipids.  It helps to build up the structure of the system, increasing viscosity and stability of emulsions in which it is used.  Additionally, it combines this with a good "delivery action" of lipids into the skin, increasing penetration, absorption, and improving the after-use feel of final products.

Oliwax® increases final viscosity without adding stickiness and the whitening effect other common wax systems may add to a formulation.  It adds a very light and silky touch, smooth texture, excellent shine, easy absorption and no greasiness.

The reticulating properties of Oliwax®, its crystal network, allow it to contain at least 75% of a lipid phase without lowering its melting point.  Reticulated oils enclosed in such a crystal network become resistant to oxidation.  This added stability to oxidation has been demonstrated by Rancimat tests to be three times higher at 80°C than non-reticulated oils.

Oliwax® has been shown to have a high affinity for silicone-based systems and may improve the stability in Water-in-Silicone emulsions as well as improve the after-use feel of the final product.  It is compatible with Oil-in-Water and Water-in-Oil systems, as well as surfactant based products.

Oliwax® has not been tested on animals.  Tests have been performed, primarily Patch Tests, on the skin of human adult volunteers and it has been classified as Non-Irritating on the skin.

Oliwax®has been determined to be over 90% biodegradable by the OECD method.

What a pleasant surprise to work with a company that ALWAYS deliver on-time or early, exactly what I ordered, and responds to questions as soon as I ask! I am very pleased with my interactions with Lotioncrafters!
Marie Plageman, (Bullenbees)

The day I realized that topical vitamin C was causing my acne was the beginning of a long journey for me. Vitamin C is present is just about every kind of makeup and every face cream available on the market. LotionCrafters, with their amazing choice of products, and their detailed information has allowed me to create my own vitamin-c-free formulations, and have healthy skin once again.
