Liquiwax™ PolyEFA

Add to favourites
A polymeric liquid emollient containing essential fatty acids, Liquiwax PolyEFA provides the conditioning effects of omega-6-linoleic acid in a high molecular weight, moderate viscosity polymeric ester. Its high refractive index imparts gloss to various formulations, and its excellent pigment dispersing properties make it suitable for make-up and sunscreen products. It can also enhance make-up removal in skin cleansers.
