INCI – Polysorbate 80

Polysorbates are a class of emulsifiers used in pharmaceuticals and food preparation. They are often used in cosmetics to solubilise essential oils and fragrance oils into water-based products. Polysorbate 80 (INCI: polyoxyethylene (20), sorbitan monooleate) is an amber/golden-colored viscous liquid used as as an emulsifier or surfactant in foods, medicines, skincare products, vaccines etc. It also acts as a surfactant in soaps and cosmetics.

Uses

Polysorbate 80 helps bind ingredients like oil and water to each other. As well as dispersing colour throughout water, making them perfect for use in bath bombs. Polysorbate 80, stop oils and colour from sticking to your tub, reducing the risk of it being slippery and once rinsed, leaving your tubs nice and clean.

It is made from polyethoxylated sorbitan (chemical compounds derived from the dehydration of sugar alcohol), ethylene oxide and oleic acid, a fatty acid found in animal and vegetable fats

It is often an ingredient in body washes, hair shampoos, lotions, creams, bath oils etc..

It is a safe, non-ionic emulsifier. It can be used with a co-emulsifier, such as Lecithin to cover a wide range of oil in water, and water in oil emulsion systems.

Individually, it is an excellent solubiliser of essential oils, wetting agent, viscosity modifier, stabiliser and dispersing agent.
