A fine-tuned composition

Gattefossé pushed the limits of its patented wax butter technology to develop the most advanced and robust version of Gattefossé ingredients from wax butters, Emulium® Dolcea MB.

Every component of Emulium® Dolcea MB plays a critical role to ensure stability and impact to the final emulsion.

  • Jojoba and sunflower waxes used in Emulium® Dolcea MB react with vegetable polyglycerol to create a 100% natural origin O/W emulsifier, which bring moisturizing benefits due to the vegetable waxes and true sensory identity.
  • Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate (SSG) is used as a strong primary emulsification agent.
  • Glyceryl stearate and cetearyl alcohol add even more robustness to the emulsion structure.
Biodegradability Emulium Dolcea MB

Biodegradability :

  • The composition of Emulium® Dolcea MB has been carefully chosen to ensure excellent biodegradability
  • Emulium® Dolcea MB is considered as readily biodegradable


Emulium® Dolcea MB can be added to the oil phase preferentially, or to the water phase if necessary.

Robust, it is capable of emulsifying and stabilizing emulsions with up to 40% of oil phase. In the form of pellets, it is very easy to formulate, it does not require high shear mixing and enables the creation of very fine emulsions (5-10 µm).

Different formulation processes:

With Emulium® Dolcea MB, our most natural emulsifier, several processes can be used to answer different constraints.
