PEG-3 Distearate

PEG-3 Distearate is defined as surfactant - emulsifying agent, employed in cosmetics to prepare emulsions. The efficacy of emulsifying agents depends on their ability to reduce surface tension, to form complex films on the surface of emulsified droplets, and to create a repulsive barrier on emulsified droplets to prevent their coalescence. In addition it acts as opacifier especially suitable for surfactant preparations - deliberately added to reduce their clear or transparent appearance.
