Emulium® Mellifera MB

Designed to delight

From light milky lotions to rich butters, users’ needs and preferences for texture vary considerably and are strongly influenced by skin type, climate (e.g., cold winters or hot and humid summers), and cultural differences. There is thus a demand for a large range of cosmetic textures. However, despite such differences, universal requirements do exist: pleasure upon application; moisturization; comfort; and natural, environmentally responsible composition. Recognizing the need for flexible ingredients that meet the expectations of worldwide consumers, Gattefossé has developed Emulium® Mellifera MB, an innovative sensorial emulsifier. Based on patented technology that transforms and functionalizes natural waxes, Emulium® Mellifera MB automatically adapts to the local environment, guaranteeing pleasure for all users.
