TEGIN® Pellets MB
INCI: Glyceryl Stearate SEProduct Category: Emulsifier
TEGIN® Pellets MB is a classical PEG-free anionic emulsifier for cosmetic oil-in-water creams with pleasant application properties. TEGIN® Pellets MB forms stable emulsions in pH ranges of 6.8 – 8.2.
This emulsifier is produced on the basis of vegetable raw materials. The amount used, referred to the emulsion, is 6.0 – 8.0%. The oil content (including emulsifier) can be varied from 20% – 40%. All common cosmetic oils and fats can be emulsified; the resulting creams show good stability. However, the exclusive use of high viscous oils has a negative influence on the application properties. Additives containing acids or electrolytes act as destbailizers; they have to be dosed carefully.

The oil phase including the emulsifier and water phase are heated separately to 65°C. It is recommended to add the hot oil phase to the hot water phase while stirring. The coarsely dispersed pre-emulsion is then homogenized. The emulsion is cooled while slightly stirring; the stirrer has to guarantee equal horizontal and vertical thorough mixing, even at temperatures below 50°C – 45°C, when the low viscous emulsions become highly viscous to creamy.
