Polyhydroxystearic Acid

Polyhydroxystearic Acid

Polyhydroxystearic Acid- (lip butter, lip balm, lip scrub)

A soft pliable plant-derived wax acts as a natural emulsifier, functions as a film former, emollient, and plasticizer. Our R + D team like Polyhydroxystearic Acid because it helps keep ingredients blended and creates creamier textures while increasing formula stability. We use it in combination with other plant-based waxes and esters to replace beeswax in our formulas. Polyhydroxystearic acid is made with castor bean seed, our source is Kosher, GMO-free, and NPA Certified. EWG Score- 1
