Polysorbate 20 is a raw material for cosmetics, but also for some other products.


Polysorbate 20 is an emulsifier used, for example, to make essential oil and other fragrances miscible with water. It can also be used to make water-immiscible active ingredients miscible with water.

Take hair gel for example: the gel itself is based on water. You could use polysorbate to scent this aquatic product. To make 1 gram of fragrant miscible with water, first mix this with 4 to 6 grams of polysorbate. This mixture of polysorbate and fragrance is then miscible with water in any ratio. The dose of polysorbate mainly depends on the composition of the fragrance or active ingredient. This differs and should be tried every time.

In addition, it can be used as a co-emulsifier in creams, follow a suitable formula for this. Besides cosmetics, it is also used in various products. Examples include photographic mixtures, paint and cleaning agents.
