Glucate™ SS emulsifier

INCI Name: Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate

Glucamate™ SSE-20 and Glucate™ SS emulsifiers are unique, naturally-derived, nonionic emulsifiers that work well together or individually. Glucate SS emulsifier is methyl glucose esterified with stearic acid. It is 100% active, and is supplied as off-white flakes. Glucate SS emulsifier has water-in-oil emulsifying activity, and Glucamate SSE-20 emulsifier is an oil-in-water emulsifier. Used together, they form a complementary pair offering safety and performance advantages over more conventional emulsifiers. With extremely low eye irritation scores, these ingredients are perfect for creams, lotions and make-up used near the eye.
