Sisterna sucrose esters are a unique range of high quality, non-ionic emulsiﬁers with an exceptional performance and mildness to skin and eyes.
Sisterna sucrose esters can offer other unique beneﬁts to personal care formulations, thus offering formulators many advantages in these times of environmental consciousness.
Sisterna sucrose esters
Sucrose esters are produced with sucrose, from beet and cane, and fatty acids from palm and coconut oil. This enables them to be used as emulsifiers in virtually all food and personal care products. Emulsifiers are substances that are able to mix two immiscible substances that normally do not mix, for example water and oil and water and air (foam). Although sucrose esters are categorized as emulsifiers, their functionality is not only emulsification.
Our aim is to be recognised as the ambassador and knowlegde provider for sucrose esters in our market. Over the last 25 years we have developed numerous food as well as personal care applications with our sucrose esters.
