ELDEW® PS-203 

INCI Name:

Phytosteryl/Octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate

ELDEW® PS-203 is an emollient derived from glutamic acid, natural fatty acid, higher alcohol and phytosterol. Research has confirmed that ELDEW® forms lamella liquid crystals identical to ceramide. As a result, ELDEW®, a ceramide-like amino acid derivative, yields emollient efficacy comparable to that of a ceramide. This grade appears in a liquid form.
