Non-ionic liquid crystal emulsifier
AC-M68 is a non-ionic, liquid crystal emulsifier based on the HLB system. It is totally nature emulsifier and derived from matter of vegetable origin. Liquid crystal emulsifiers create a lamellar or bilayered structure that mimics the lipid bilayers in our stratum corneum, which may help
actives or lipids from our lotions penetrate our skin easier. They also help reduce transepidermal water loss as the lotions hold more water in contact with the skin for a longer period of time.

STORAGE AND STABILITY
The product may be stored for 24 months from the date of manufacture in the unopened original container and at room temperature.
It should be protected from light, heat, oxygen and moisture. Keep container tightly closed. Once opened, use contents quickly.
When formulating with AC-M68, include it in the heated oil phase of your product.
AC-M68 does best with a 25% oil phase, and works to emulsify natural oils as well as silicones
Including a fatty alcohol like Cetyl or Cetearyl Alcohol can help increase the liquid crystal formation in the lotion.
It is compatible with cationic ingredients, like Honeyquat and Cetrimonium Chloride.
And it works well from pH 3 to 12, so it’s a good choice for making lotions as diverse as light facial moisturizers with AHAs and bleaching or depilatory creams.
