  • Company:


  • INCI Name:

    PEG-45/Dodecyl Glycol Copolymer

Nouryon makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

ELFACOS® ST 9 emulsion stabilizer is a polyalkylene glycol supplied in paste form which has excellent stabilizing effects on emulsions. Due to its high capacity to absorb water and oil, a relatively low percentage is needed in personal care formulations. The stabilizing effect is not attributed to an increase of viscosity. Contrary, it reduces the viscosity of formulations to an extent that opens the possibility of manufacturing low viscosity, stable W/O emulsions. Non-ionic copolymer, ELFACOS® ST 9 emulsion stabilizer is hydrolytically stable and effective over wide pH ranges. It’s also tolerant to high concentrations of electrolyte.
