Lexemul 561 is a nonionic, modified self-emulsifying glyceryl monostearate. It is designed as a primary emulsifier for all types of o/w cream or lotion systems. The viscosity of emulsions made with Lexemul 561 can be varied through the addition of bodying agents, such as glyceryl stearate and fatty alcohols. Lexemul 561 can form stable emulsions in the presence of high levels of electrolyte and in combination with other emulsifiers of any ionic type.
