Hostacerin O 050

CAS number:
EINECS number:
Emulsifier / Solubilizer
Non Governmental organization

General description

Unlike standard Oleth-5 products, Hostacerin O 050 is a narrow range ethoxylate resulting in a clear liquid product which can be processed cold. In addition it is clear soluble in a wide range of cosmetic oils. Thus Hostacerin O 050 is an excellent emulsifier and solubilizer for the cosmetic industry.

The table shows the excellent solubility in many oils:

10% Hostacerin O 050 in: appearance
Mineral Oil clear solution
Isohexadecane clear solution
Hydrogenated Polyisobutene clear solution
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride clear solution
Soja Oil homogeneous turbid solution
Jojoba Oil clear solution
Isopropylpalmitate clear solution
Dicaprylylether clear solution
Cyclomethicone (D5) turbid, not soluble
Dimethicone (50 cSt) turbid, not soluble


Hostacerin O 050 can be used as a nonionic emulsifier and co-emulsifier. Since the product is liquid, the product is cold processable and can be used very flexibly in many cosmetic formulations. Both classic products like traditional emulsions based on nonionic emulsifiers and specialized products, for example self emulsifying blooming bath oils, leave on and rinse off hair conditioners or hair dye emulsions are easily and succesfully made with Hostacerin O 050.
As shown in the table, a broad variety of different oil phases can be used with Hostacerin O 050.
The special profile of Hostacerin O 050 in contrast to standard Oleth-5 allows the use in a second application field: as very powerful solubilizer. Clear hair gels and facial toners are examples where the excellent solubiliz-ing activity of Hostacerin O 050 is frequently used.
The HLB value of Hostacerin O 050 is given as 9, if a higher HLB value is needed in the final application, we recommend combining the product with another liquid nonionic product, e.g. Genapol UD 080 (Undeceth-8) which has an HLB value of 13.
