HallStar® PEG 4400 MS is a high HLB (18.8) nonionic emulsifier from petrochemical and vegetal sources. It is supplied as an off-white to light tan flake with characteristic slightly fatty odor. It is frequently used in conjunction with a low HLB emulsifier (e.g., Glyceryl Stearate, HLB 3.8) to produce stable oil-in-water (O/W) emulsions that form the basis for many lotion- and cream- type personal care products.

HallStar® PEG 4400 MS is stable at commonly encountered product pH (~3.5 – 9). Its typical use level in emulsions is 1-3%.   It is in compliance with the TSCA regulation of the United States.
