We are starting a new series of videos where we will be talking about tips and techniques involved in making personal care products. The first video I am presenting right now is about cold process emulsions.

COLD PROECESS EMULSION- Emulsions are thermodynamically unstable systems in which one phase is dispersed into another. When the oils phase consists of waxes, butters, solid emulsifiers and fatty alcohols, it has to be heated to at least 70-75 degree Celsius along with the water phase. But with the new polymers and liquid emulsifiers, cold process emulsions are possible.

Advantages of cold process emulsions-

  1. Economical
  2. Quick and easy
  3. Ecofriendly

The type of cold process emulsion I have formulated today is a Gel-crème. Ingredients for the product are as follows-  

  1. Simulgel NS (Supplier- Seppic)- Hydroxyethyl acrylate/Sodium acryloyldimethyltaurate (and) Squalane (and) Polysorbate 60
  2. Imbue Shea (Green Line LLC.)- Water, Butyrospermum parkii (Shea) oil, Glycerin, Polyglyceryl-6 stearate, Glyceryl calrpylate, Carthamus tinctorius (Safflower) seed oil, Xanthan gum, Rosemary extract
  3. Optiphen (Ashland)- Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl glycol

The gel-crème is paraben free, vegan, cruelty free and compliant with Sephora clean guidelines.

Please find the video for the formulation. I am hoping that you will find this video helpful.
