Produces stable O/W emulsions, especially when combined with Span 60 and cetostearyl alcohol or other fatty alcohols. Excellent for the emulsification of esters, minerals and silicone oils. Vegetable-derived.

Croda considers the RSPO’s Mass Balance system to be an important progressive step in supporting the palm oil physical supply chain and creating momentum towards segregated sustainable Palm Oil and Palm Kernel Oil material. To that end, sampling will be of the sustainable palm variant, SP Tween 60 MBAL.
