5 thoughts on “Polyglyceryl Oleate

  1. if you make a oil cleanser how do you know how much to add of the Polyglyceryl-4 Oleate? What is a good starting base if you are making a 5 oz bottle to start?

  2. What other emulsifiers operate similar to what makes this special, if any? I have a ton of different emulsifiers already and just want to make sure I’m not hoarding things that definitely already work just like this lol. Any near true substitutes/combinations?

    1. There are a few water-in-oil (w/o) emulsifiers. But I can’t vouch that one will be a good substitute for the other. For example, I have “Glyceryl Oleate” and “Sorbitan Oleate” but I can’t confirm that they keep the emulsion just as stable as Polyglyceryl Oleate. One thing I’ve noticed for sure is the “Glyceryl Stearate SE” is very good at stabilization AND thickening. (If you decide to get that one, make sure you get the “SE” version because it’s self-emulsifying). If I had to pick one water-in-oil emuslfier between all three, I’d pick the self-emulsifying Glyceryl Stearate SE even though it will make a cream.
