Emulium® Kappa MB

Natural sensuality

Gattefossé has developed Emulium® Kappa MB to answer formulators’ need for a multifunctional PEG-free emulsifier of natural origin that yields stable emulsions; offers the added value of greater activity; and creates a unique sensorial identity.

Oil-in-water emulsions based on Emulium® Kappa MB are very glossy and have a rich and luxurious feel. They are easy to apply, have a long play time, create a sensation of comfort, are softly textured (comparable to silicone elastomers), and exert a remarkable, lasting cushion effect—for baby-soft, replumed skin.
