Exposed to environmental stress, the skin’s barrier function is altered, facilitating the penetration of irritants, and increasing Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL). As a result, the skin becomes dry and presents sensitivity, associated with redness and a stinging sensation.
There is a growing need for mild, soothing texture ingredients that reduce skin sensitivity to aggression and enable the use of skincare and make-up products without reaction and discomfort.
Emulium® Dermolea MB, an O/W emulsifier, reduces skin stress and brings long-term soothing thanks to its unique lipidic composition rich in sterols and triterpenes. Highly moisturizing and protective, it is shown to reinforce the skin barrier function. Used at up to 4%, it is suitable for all skin types, in both humid and dry climates.
- Creates a thin, skin-compatible moisturizing film
- Reinforces the skin barrier function
- Easy to process in lab and production
- Protects against inflammatory stress induced by pollution
- Long-lasting and long-term moisturization
- Long-term soothing effect

The ingredient video summary
Emulium® Dermolea MB was obtained using Gattefossé’s proprietary knowledge on the wax butter technology. Candelilla wax, rice bran wax, and jojoba wax have been selected for their complementary properties and functionalized with polyglycerol-3.
Composed of plant lipids close to those of the skin’s surface, rich in anti-inflammatory pentacyclic triterpenes and sterols, Emulium® Dermolea MB forms a fine skin-compatible film, proven to reduce environmental skin stress.
Highly moisturizing and protective, it reinforces the skin barrier function and brings long-term soothing.
Capable of emulsifying oil phases up to 40% Emulium® Dermolea MB can create sprays to thick butters suitable for skin care, suncare, makeup and hair/scalp care.
In the form of pellets, it is very easy to formulate and it forms stable emulsions. The use of a gelling agent is recommended for better stability, particularly at high temperatures.
Emulium® Dermolea MB creates thin and light textures with a:
- Glossy appearance
- High spreadability
- Low film residue
- Low greasiness
- Smooth and comfortable afterfeel
Adapted to all climates:
An emulsion containing 4% of Emulium® Dermolea MB presents a similar sensory profile in temperate and tropical humid conditions.
An active emulsifier:
Substantiation tests have been conducted to prove that Emulium® Dermolea MB is not only an emulsifier but also an active functional ingredient:
- Ex vivo test : Protection against pollution
- In vitro test: Reinforcement of the skin barrier function
- 3 in vivo tests: Long-lasting and long-term moisturization, long-term soothing effect, suitable for sensitive skin
