SIMULGREEN 18-2 (INCI Name : Hydroxystearyl alcohol and Hydroxystearyl glucoside) is an O/W emulsifier from 100% vegetable origin. The presence of a free diol in its structure makes it hydrophilic and helps prevent soapy effect especially in emulsions with high levels of vegetable oils and natural gums. It has versatile emulsifying properties with all nature of oils over broad pH range (3-10). Apart from its improved resistance to high stress inducing ingredients, it can deliver moisturizing effect even after 8 hours of application. It also imparts a nude but soft skin sensation.
