Kahl Emulsions and Self-Emulsifying Waxes

Kahl emulsions are extraordinarily well suited for water-based hair styling products and sunscreen products. In both cases, the films formed by the waxes result in unique product characteristics.

One of the problems commonly encountered when using waxes with a high melting point is that the oil has to be heated at a high temperature for a long period, causing the risk of overheating. In contrast, the advantage of self-emulsifying waxes is that they’re the combination of a wax blend and a PEG-free emulsifier, meaning they can simply be added to the water phase and heated to approximately 80°C for gentle melting. With their outstandingly good product characteristics, self-emulsifying waxes are the ideal solution for cosmetics emulsions.
