White cream on a peach background

A cold process emulsifier that creates luxurious, cream-gel textures. This easy to use powder provides an all-in-one solution for thickening and emulsification that is also highly compatible with a wide range of actives, including acids, electrolytes, enzymes and solvents.

100% naturally derived, it is based on Soapberry saponins which are extracted using only water to give a concentrated emulsifier with excellent stabilising properties. This, combined with natural gums, enables the creation of smooth and stable serums, lotions and creams with a luxuriously silky, silicone-like feel.

With proven moisturisation properties, this mild ingredient with low use level is suitable for creams, lotions, body and facial washes, baby products and even hair wash applications.

Questions & answers

Can Luxamul® be used to thicken my natural surfactant blend?

Many natural surfactants can be thickened using Luxamul®, experiment yourself or ask one of our team for advice.

How long do I need to mix a Luxamul® emulsion for during manufacturing?

In the lab a Luxamul® emulsion is formed immediately, but for full hydration of the gums, several minutes of homogenisation is recommended. In the factory it would depend on the mixer type but when a smooth cream is formed then the mixing is complete.

How can I alter the viscosity of a cream to make it thicker and richer?

This is easy to do with Luxamul®, our recommendation is to add glyceryl stearate, fatty alcohols, butters or waxes. These all need to be melted in the oil phase before combining with the water and Luxamul® phase.

Can I heat Luxamul®?

Luxamul® is fully heat stable and can be used in a hot or cold process.

Do I need to add extra thickeners or co-emulsifiers?

No, Luxamul® already has all the emulsifiers and thickeners built in and will thicken and stabilise in one.

How much oil can I emulsify with Luxamul®?

You can emulsify up to 30% of oil, with 1 part of Luxamul® emulsifying up to 10 parts of oil.
