INCI ADOPTED NAME
Glyceryl Stearate SE
Lexemul T is a self-emulsifying glyceryl monostearate. It is designed for use as an emulsifier, stabilizer, opacifier, and an emollient in neutral to slightly alkaline anionic systems. The self-emulsifying properties of Lexemul T minimize the need for co-emulsifiers in many formulations. It can form lamellar liquid crystalline and/or crystalline gel phases in emulsions containing a large water phase. Lexemul T is suggested for use as the primary emulsifier in o/w emulsion systems.
