INCI ADOPTED NAME
Lexemul 515 is a neutral, non self-emulsifying grade of glyceryl monostearate. Lexemul 515 can be used as a secondary or auxiliary emulsifier, emulsion stabilizer, opacifier, amphiphilic bodying agent and emollient in nonionic, anionic or cationic w/o and o/w emulsions, and surfactant systems. Lexemul 515 can also be used as a polar emollient in non-aqueous systems. Lexemul 515 in conjunction with a primary emulsifier will produce emulsions of a rich, smooth texture that is typical of the self-emulsifying Lexemul T, Lexemul AR and Lexemul AS emulsifiers.
