Olivem® 1000

INCI Name: Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate
Product Code: O100
Brand: Olivem®

COSMOS-validated Olivem® 1000 is a PEG-free self-emulsifying multifunctional ingredient (white to ivory waxy flakes at 20°C, melting point ~ 70°C). It is a complex combination of fatty acids, chemically similar to the lipidic composition of the skin surface. Olivem® 1000 has the ability to generate liquid crystal structures that mimic the stratum corneum organization. As the sole emulsifier, Olivem® 1000 provides a deep moisturizing effect.

Hallstar conducted several clinical tests on this biomimetic emulsifying active to discover if its complex combination of fatty acids is compatible with the skin microbiota ecosystem, as experts recommend. Results showed Olivem© 1000 is indeed a microbiome-friendly functional ingredient that preserves skin’s cutaneous microbiota composition and biodiversity.

In addition to its many skin care applications, Olivem® 1000 can be used in hair care formulations such as crème rinse and leave-in conditioners, improving wet combability as demonstrated by clinical testing. It is also effective as the emulsifying base for more traditional hair conditioner formulae that use cationic ingredients, broadening its scope of applicability.

The recommended use level for Olivem® 1000 is 3 – 5% in o/w emulsions as the sole emulsifier and 0.5 – 2% as a co-emulsifier.

Shelf life: 60 months.
