They find use in cleansing products (cold creams, cleansing lotions, etc.) make-up, foundations, sunscreen products, lipsticks and emulsion products.
Polyethylene Sorbitan Esters
When combined with the Sorbitan Esters, they form stable emulsions. Useful in the same products as the Sorbitan Esters
Polyoxyethylene & Polyoxypropylene Ethers
When used in combination with other surfactants, they build viscosity, boost and stabilize foam and have skin and hair conditioning properties.
Polyethylene Glycol Esters
The higher molecular weight PEG esters act as viscosity boosters, opacifying agents and skin and hair conditioners for shampoos, cream rinses, lotions and creams.
An important characteristic of PEG esters is that they are neither eye nor skin irritants and safe for use in baby products.
