The Science Behind

SustOleo™ TL has a polymorphic crystalline structure which means that it has two distinct crystalline phases. This polymorphic crystalline structure creates two distinct melt points. Both SustOleo TL melt points are close to skin temperature, which creates a unique dual sensory effect.
