Simulgreen™ 18-2
EC# 700-891-2

Simulgreen™ 18-2 is natural source, all-in-one liquid crystal emulsifier derived from castor oil and sugar that contains no ethoxylated ingredients. It is a non-ionic oil-in-water emulsifier that can be used to emulsify vegetable oils, silicones, and esters. It can emulsify oils when used as low as 2%, and has good compatibility with electrolytes.

Lotions made with Simulgreen™ 18-2 will be lighter and easier to spread than those made with traditional emulsifying waxes . It prevents the soaping effect found with other emulsifiers, and it is absorbed more quickly by the skin. Actives and lipids can penetrate the skin more easily due to the liquid crystal emulsion’s ability to mimic the lipid bilayers in our stratum corneum, leading to a reduction in transepidermal water loss and increase in moisturization.

It is ECOcert and Natrue approved, and derived from sustainable vegetable sources without the use of solvents. It is considered biodegradable.

Key benefits:

  • Natural source vegetable emulsifier from sustainable sources
  • No soaping effect in creams and lotions
  • ECOcert and Nature approved
  • Green technology ingredient

Formulating with Simulgreen™ 18-2

When using this emulsifier, a stabilizer like xanthan gum used at 0.5% can increase stability. Fatty alcohols used at low levels (1 to 3%) can also be used to help increase the formation of the liquid crystal structure. Simulgreen™ 18-2 offers a creamy texture as low as 3%, and can be used as low as 2% with vegetable oils. When making a lotion, it is suggested that the water phase be poured into the oil phase, then mixed using a stick blender before moving to a hand mixer.

Appearance: White pellets
Stability: Stable between pH 3 - 10
HLB: 14 - 15

It is with great sadness we have discontinued shipping to Australia due to the Australian government shifting their burden of tax collection and remission to foreign sellers. Given there is no reciprocal agreement between the USA and Australia for excise tax collection, we are declining to register with Australia and start burdensome international tax collection on their behalf. Please note, this also includes the use of package forwarders as the tax collection burden is still the seller's responsibility. We're unhappy, you're unhappy, but unless the situation changes, this is where we are. Jenny

Our Customers Say...
I just started buying from LotionCrafter's, I am so elated that I found them. They have excellent quality products at very reasonable costs and able to buy in small quantities if needed without a minimum. Most of all is the wealth of information that they have with each product. I have been looking for a supplier like this for years. Glad to have found you.

I have known Jennifer for many years and she has never steered me wrong. Often when experimenting to find the right product for my eyes I have had to rely on her expertise and not one single time has she not been available to help.
