Glyceryl Stearate & PEG-100 Stearate
We use this combination of two emulsifying ingredients so that our products remain blended and don't separate. When used in a moisturizer, this combo forms a protective barrier on the surface of the skin, helping it to retain moisture.
Glyceryl stearate is a solid and waxy compound. It is made by reacting glycerin (a soap by-product) with stearic acid (a naturally occurring, vegetable fatty acid). PEG-100 stearate is an off-white, solid ester of polyethylene glycol (a binder and a softener) and stearic acid.
