Glyceryl Stearate nse

Glyceryl Stearate

is also known as Glycerin Mono Stearate, or GMS. Glyceryl Stearate is the natural glyceryl ester from stearic acid (glycerine and stearic acid), which functions as a non-ionic surfactant, o/w co-emulsifier and exhibits emollient properties. Is used as an opacifier, thickener, and formulation stabiliser. Glycerol mono stearate also imparts a softer, smoother, feel to your emulsions.

Glyceryl Stearate is one of the best choices as an emulsifier, where it offers thickening and stabilising to the formulation. When used in combination with the lactylates, it also functions as an emollient, and gives the emulsion additional smoothness. Used in skin care creams and lotions, sun care and colour cosmetics.
