Safety and mildness are key requirements in today’s personal care industry and are increasingly driving the cosmetic formulators to focus their interest on natural or naturally-derived raw materials.

Sucrose esters of fatty acids are based on:

  • cane sugar and beet sugar
  • palm/coconut oil fatty acids

Sisterna sucrose esters are obtained by esterifying sucrose with methyl fatty acids. By varying the degree of esterification of the sucrose molecule it is possible to obtain emulsifiers with HLB values ranging from 1 up to 16 for the high mono-esters.
