Hydrogenated Olive Oil

Detailed Description and Properties


INCI: Hydrogenated Ethylhexyl Olivate (and) Hydrogenated Olive Oil

This highly stable transparent liquid emollient is of olive origin, with great affinity for the skin. It can be used as a vegetable alternative to silicones (Cyclomethicone D5, Dimethicone DC 200, etc) and has a stable viscosity at any temperature (like Cyclomethicone D5). It also exhibits both stable colour and odour at high temperature (100º C) as well as stable peroxide value at high temperature (100º C), just like silicones. It is compatible with most oily ingredients, even those with different polarities, unlike silicones.

Dry after feel with a long-lasting silky feel
Excellent skin moisturizer/ hair conditioner, like silicones

Improves hair brightness and smoothness (easier combing), like silicones
Imparts great sensorial performance and spreadability to formulations and won't interfere with a formulations viscosity
