Emulsifying Wax is a wax which is use to bind together water and oil for the purpose of forming a sleek and smooth cream, lotion and emulsion. Generally the emulsifying waxes are used in pharmaceutical to form lotions, ointments and creams and also in cosmetic industry. This wax acts at molecular level and magnetize both oil and water simultaneously. If talked in the language of chemicals, then the substances which are like water are walled polar materials and are called Hydrophilic and the materials which do not love water are hydrophobic materials or non-polar materials. On the other hand the emulsifying wax has the properties of both hydrophilic and hydrophobic materials. This property of this wax helps it in binding both oil and water together. This is possible because a few structures of this wax attract water and a few attracts oil. Each part of the wax helps it in trapping liquid and hence unable it to separate from it. Oil always remains mixed with water and hence the wax helps the oil in penetrating deep into the skin and in restoration of the lost moisture.
This wax is used in making of commercial quality creams and lotions. Anionic Self Emulsifying Wax is highly useful for General as well as economical purposes. It is ideal for cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications.
