Ultimate stability for multi formulations


AMPHISOL® K , the formulators’ choice for stabilizing the most challenging formulations

AMPHISOL® K is an oil-in-water emulsifier designed to meet high stability needs of challenging and complex formulations like sunscreens, skin care and make-up formulations. Its exclusive microdomains technology allows formulators to stabilize the most versatile combinations of personal care ingredients, even those with high loads of pigment and high contents of oil, ethanol, and electrolytes. This emulsifier ingredient provides high flexibility to formulate various types of products, from creams to sprays and mousses. AMPHISOL® K has proven performance in the most challenging formulations, including in spray formulations, compared to other main benchmarks and PCPs. Further it can also be used as a co-emulsifier to rescue and beautify your challenging make-up, skin care and sun care formulations, making processing easier.

Microdomains technology

AMPHISOL® K does not only form both, liquid crystalline lamellar and vesicle structures in your formulation, it will also form unique Microdomains to ensure the quality of your product until the last drop! The micro-domains made of AMPHISOL® K are negatively charged and create the repulsion of the liquid cristalline vesicles which ensures the ultimate stability of the emulsion.
