Description

MONTANOV™ L is an versatile O/W alkylpolyglucoside emulsifier of natural origin with a light feel, for all types of application and texture: spray to butter. As a promoter of liquid crystals which biomimic the lipid bilayer of cellular membrane, it helps to stabilize the emulsion, provides the restructuring effect (reduction of TEWL) and the moisturizing effect. 100% Natural Origin Content, COSMOS & Natrue approved, covered by a Mass Balance RSPO certificate

Lotions made with Montanov™ L are described as being ultra-soft with a light texture.  It make ultra-white emulsions.  Creams and lotions made with it, even when used in high-viscosity products, will be easy to apply due to its shear thinning profile with moderate thixotropy. They are lighter and more moisturizing than those made with non-liquid crystal emulsifiers, like Polawax™ or Emulsifying Wax NF.
