Emulfree® CBG MB

Cooling sensation

Access resources


Moisturization is a key benefit of any skin care product. Textures directly inspired by water can create cosmetic formulations offering users an instant feeling of enhanced moisturization.

Emulfree® CBG MB is a unique ingredient that imparts a refreshing, long-lasting sensation of coolness upon application. It forms a bi-gel, without any surfactant. When applied to the skin, the bi-gel structure breaks down to release the two phases. A fine oily layer stays on the skin while a fraction of the water evaporates.

Emulfree CBG Bi-Gel

A bi-gel is a dispersion of an oily network within an aqueous gel, stabilized by a unique liquid surfactant-free system: Emulfree® CBG MB. This lipid-based system is a synergistic association of ethylcellulose with emollients that stabilizes the oil-water interface and allows the creation of refreshing, quick-break textures.

Ethylcellulose, located both in the oil droplets and at the oil-water interface,  stabilizes the droplets via steric repulsion and prevents floculation and coalescence.

Formulation Emulfree CBG

The absence of surfactant makes Emulfree® CBG MB suitable for high-tolerance formulations with unique properties.

Easy-to-spread Emulfree®  CBG MB yields ultralight textures that create a cooling sensation and a quick-break effect. The residual film after complete absorption is almost imperceptible.

Depending on its use level and how it is combined with gelling and consistency agents, Emulfree® CBG MB let you formulate textures from spays to thick creams.
