Lexemul® 515 MB is a 100% biobased, neutral and non self-emulsifying grade of glyceryl monostearate. Lexemul® 515 MB can be used as a secondary or auxiliary emulsifier, emulsion stabilizer, opacifier, amphiphilic bodying agent and emollient in nonionic, anionic or cationic w/o and o/w emulsions, and surfactant systems. Lexemul® 515 MB can also be used as a polar emollient in non-aqueous systems.
