Durosoft® PK-SG is a liquid ingredient and functions as an emulsifier (o/w, w/o and co-emulsifier). It is water and oil soluble in addition to being cold processable. It is also naturally derived, PEG-free and non-nitrosamine forming.
We have been testing Durosoft® PK-SG in several formulations, and it has been included in the last reprint of our Making Your Own Moisturisers Book. This product is a liquid emulsifier that is excellent to make water thin to thick creams that are cold processed. This emulsifier can still be used in the usual way, but it is nice to have this flexible emulsifier available to home crafters and small business.
Apart from the carbon footprint aspect of cold processing, the lack of heating means the preservative system, essential oils and actives retain their attributes without fear of overheating them. Durosoft® PK-SG is a naturally derived polyglycerol ester made using 100% RSPO Certified Segregated, Sustainable Palm Kernel Oil.
