Oxiteno makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

ALKEST® E 60 M F is a sorbitan ester derived from the reaction of sorbitol with fatty acids. It is lipophilic and has a low HLB value of 4.7. The lipophilic nature makes it soluble or dispersible in oil, favoring its use in water-in-oil (W/O) emulsions and as a low HLB emulsifier used in combination with high HLB emulsifiers in oil-in-water (O/W) emulsions.

ALKEST® E 60 M F and ALKEST® O 80 M, when used in combination with ALKEST® TW 60 or 80, are excellent emulsifiers for beeswax, paraffin, carnauba and their mixtures, promoting stability and homogeneity of formulations. To prepare cosmetic creams and lotions, the selection of fatty acids and degrees of ethoxylation allow many combinations between the ALKEST® L, ALKEST® E, ALKEST® O and ALKEST® TW products to obtain the right balance of emulsifiers for optimum performance and stability.
