Glyceryl Stearate is used as a skin conditioning agent – emollient and a surfactant – emulsifying agent in cosmetics and personal care products. Glyceryl Stearate is also used to stabilize a product, decrease water evaporation, make the product freeze-resistant, and keep it from forming surface crusts.
Its Glycerol component makes Glyceryl Stearate SE a fast-penetrating emollient when applied topically, which helps to create a protective barrier on the skin surface. This helps to maintain hydration and to slow moisture loss.
Glyceryl Stearate SE is a plant-derived emulsifier ideal for oil-in-water emlusions. Our Glyceryl Stearate SE, where SE stands for “self emulsifying”, is derived from coconut and olive oil.
