Gattefossé will demonstrate how to formulate a surprising balm-to-oil texture: a solid balm that is actually an oil-in-water emulsion containing very little amount of water. Attendees will learn how to use Emulium® Mellifera MB, an innovative emulsifier based on functionalized natural waxes, to create this 100% natural, short and environment friendly formula.

Because of its association with high level of glycols, this easy-to-apply balm liquefies when in contact with the skin transforming into a nourishing and silky oil, without being greasy. Attendees will also discover the multiple applications of this balm when used cold, warm or in association with water.
