Naturechem™ GMHS (Glyceryl Monohydroxystearate)

Naturechem™ GMHS is a solid emollient and an attractive alternative to Glyceryl Stearate (GMS). It is incorporated into the oil phase of oil-in-water emulsions where it functions as a secondary emulsifier and thickener. Owing to its occlusivity, it reduces transepidermal water loss and in addition, hydrates the skin through humectancy via hydrogen bonding between water and the material’s hydroxyl groups.

INCI: Glyceryl Hydroxystearate

Form: Flake

Properties: Vegetable-based. Moisturizing via occlusivity and humectancy. Superior viscosity builder. Higher melt point and improved aesthetics over Glyceryl Stearate.

Applications: Emollients, secondary emulsifier, anhydrous sticks, creams and lotions.
