Patented Hydresia® oleosomes are all-natural, powerful emulsifiers with proven delivery systems in personal care. The following information is meant to guide and provide a general approach for formulators in using Hydresia® oleosomes.
Getting Started with Hydresia® Oleosomes
When using Hydresia® Oleosomes as a primary emulsifier, include thickeners to ensure the viscosity of the finished formulation is over 9000 cps (spindle 2) for optimal stability.
Limit shear to <500 rpm when adding oil phase ingredients to concentrated oleosomes. Once the water phase is added, in-line homogenization up to 3000 rpm is fine.
Temperatures of up to 55°C is acceptable for all Hydresia® system products. Temperatures of 80°C are acceptable for up to one hour for Hydresia® Dulcé, SF2, and G2. Oleosomes are stable in freeze/thaw states in most formulations; however, the raw material should not be frozen.
Hydresia® Oleosomes as a primary emulsifier
The result and core advantage is an ‘emulsifier free’ natural and mild skincare product with superior aesthetics.
Recommended Ingredient: Hydresia® SF2
Typical use levels: 3-7% for most formulations
Tips: Use thickeners to increase viscosity of water and oil phase. Limit homogenization to minutes. Add water phase incrementally (10% at a time) to prepared oil phase.
Hydresia® Oleosomes in Surfactant Systems
The result and core advantage is a difference you can feel on your skin and light emulsification for improved stability.
Recommended ingredients: Hydresia® G2 / Hydresia® Dulce
Typical use levels: 3-8% for most formulations
Tips: Use mild surfactant systems (betaines, glucosides, SLES) or structured surfactants. Premix with your fragrance for solubilization, without requiring any synthetic emulsifiers (PEG, Polysorbate).
