PEG-18

Emulsifiers are used in Bellatorra products to mix water with oils. Since water and oil do not mix but stay separated, an additional agent (emulsifier) is necessary to form a homogenous mixture keeping water and oil together. There are 2 types of emulsifier: Oil-in-water (o/w) emulsifiers keep oil drops packed in water, while water-in-oil (w/o) emulsifiers keep water drops packed in oil. PEG-18 Glyceryl Oleate/Cocoate is an o/w emulsifier.
