What is OliveM 1000?

It is a natural, vegetable-based PEG-free emulsifier and thickener derived from olives. Often used as an emulsifier and a thickener alongside other ingredients, its benefits include its pliable/spreadable creamy texture without a soapy effect. OliveM 1000 is a great option when you need to combine oil and water and do not want to use extra thickening/stabilising agents.

What are the benefits of using OliveM 1000 on your skin?

As a complex combination of fatty acids, it can form liquid crystal structures that mimic the lipids of skin. It provides a deep moisturising effect on the skin without a soapy residue.

Additional to its many benefits for the skin, it can also be used in haircare formulations and is an ideal ingredient in leave-in conditioners.
