TEGO® Care LTP MB
INCI: Sorbitan Laurate; Polyglyceryl-4 Laurate; Dilauryl CitrateProduct Category: Emulsifier
TEGO® Care LTP is a versatile, mild, vegetable-based emulsifier blend for cost-effective processing of O/W emulsions for Skin Care, Sun Care, or Baby Care applications. This product is EO- and preservative-free and easy- to-use for cold processing of lotions and sprays and for hot processing of creams at a pH 5 – 8.5. No co-emulsifiers needed. This product is able to stabilize O/W lotions prepared in a cold process without a real homogenization step. Usage concentration of 1.5 – 2.5 %.
This emulsifier blend has good compatibility with UV filters and active ingredients.
In cold processed formulations TEGO® Care LTP should be combined with polymeric stabilizers/thickeners in order to adjust the viscosity and the stability profile of the emulsions. For body lotions, combinations of 0.1 – 0.3 % TEGO® Carbomer 141 or TEGO® Carbomer 140 with Xanthan Gum proved to be most effective. For the preparation of sprayable emulsions, a combination of TEGO® Carbomer 141 and TEGO® Carbomer 341 ER (Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylates Crosspolymer) proved to be most effective.
In hot processed creams TEGO® Care LTP is preferably combined with consistency enhancers such as TEGIN® M Pellets (Glyceryl Stearate) and TEGO® Alkanol 18 (Stearyl Alcohol). The addition of small amounts of TEGO® Carbomer 134 (0.1 – 0.2 %) results in improved freeze stability and in improved maintenance of the cream-like consistency at temperatures above 40°C.
