Phospholipids derived from vegetable sources acts as an excellent emulsifier have both functional and nutritional benefits. Commercially these phospholipids composition called as Lecithin.
Lecithin’s molecular structure makes it an effective emulsifier for the interaction of water and oil. Phospholipids, the major component of lecithin, are partly hydrophilic (attracted to water) and partly hydrophobic (repelled from water).
The emulsion in which water forms the dispersed phase, and the oil acts as the dispersion medium is called a water-in-oil emulsion. Our Standard lecithin liquid, powder can provide satisfying emulsion and stability for high viscous applications like margarine & spreads, Icings & frostings, petroleum emulsions.
- Sunflower lecithin liquid & powder
- Soy lecithin liquid & powder
The emulsion in which oil is present as the dispersed phase and water as the dispersion medium (continuous phase) is called an oil-in-water emulsion. Instant formulations face a typical problem that is difficult-to-mix materials (fat, proteins, fibres, vitamins and minerals) and form unique mixture with water, milk or other such aqueous solutions.
Our lysolecithin with low viscosity can give instant emulsification in the aqueous medium like mayonnaise, Infant formulas, skin care formulations.
- Lysolecithin liquid standard – soy
- Lysolecithin liquid standard – sunflower
Cosmetics & Personal Care
Phospholipids in cosmetics & personal care can work as an effective emulsifier and an active functional ingredient for skin. As a natural component of skin, phospholipid emulsifiers are well-tolerated, due to their physical characteristics they support the physiology of skin, enhance functions of cells, helps the transport of active components into the epidermis. Being the building block of each cell it can repair cells, provides hydration, rejuvenates skin and provides younger looking benefit.
Our oil-in-water lecithin emulsifier specially produced with low viscosity is very much suitable in applications like beauty creams, lotions, face serums, shampoos etc.
- Lysolecithin liquid cosmetic grade
- Powder lecithin cosmetic grade
Lecithin being mixture of highly purified phospholipids extracts contains polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially linoleic acid and choline. Choline is an essential nutrient the body uses to make several compounds required by healthy cell membranes.
Few benefits include supporting cell membrane and function, supplying choline to body, energy production, prostaglandin production, emulsification of fat bile, cell signaling in brain, aid in blood clotting, increasing cholesterol solubility, antioxidant protection. Food fortification with powder lecithin in breakfast, nutritional bars, protein shakes offers application with better stability, enhanced shelf life and nutritional benefits.
