Title: Cithrol DPHS

Light, elegant and soft are not words that usually describe water-in-oil emulsions, but by using Cithrol DPHS as your W/O emulsifier, you can move away from thick, heavy creams and add a touch of elegance to your formulations. Cithrol DPHS (PEG 30 Dipolyhydroxystearate) is an extremely versatile W/O emulsifier. It has the unique ability to produce very stable, fluid, low viscosity emulsions which spread easily on the skin while creating a light, non-oily skin feel. With the recent publication of the PhEur monograph, now is the time to consider how Cithrol DPHS can benefit your dermatological solutions.
