Glycerol Stearate and PEG 100 Stearate are emulsifiers commonly used in skincare products to bind water and oil together. While these ingredients may sound like chemicals to some, it's important to note that they are derived from natural sources and serve a crucial purpose in certain formulations.

Glycerol Stearate is derived from glycerin, which is a natural compound found in many plant and animal fats. It acts as a surfactant, helping to reduce the surface tension between water and oil, allowing them to mix and create a stable emulsion. PEG 100 Stearate, on the other hand, is a polyethylene glycol (PEG) derivative of stearic acid, which is a naturally occurring fatty acid found in many vegetable and animal fats.

These emulsifiers are used in some of our shower scrubs, such as beard and scalp scrubs, as well as in certain spray formulations for tanning oils and body oils. They help to create a smooth and homogeneous mixture of water and oil, ensuring that the product is properly emulsified and providing an even application.

Emulsifiers like Glycerol Stearate and PEG 100 Stearate are necessary in some formulations where water and oil need to be combined, but they are carefully chosen for their safety and compatibility with other ingredients. They are widely used in cosmetic and skincare products and have been thoroughly evaluated for their safety and efficacy by regulatory agencies.

It's important to understand that not all chemicals are harmful or unnatural. In fact, many chemicals are derived from natural sources and are essential for creating effective and stable formulations. Glycerol Stearate and PEG 100 Stearate are examples of such ingredients that are derived from natural sources and play a vital role in our formulations, allowing us to create high-quality products that perform as intended.
