Whenever we are asked to formulate an emulsion, we think of and usually add a humectant. A humectant being defined as “a substance that promotes retention of moisture.” It is derived from Latin “hu-mecta-ns, hu-mecta-nt, present participle of hu-mecta-re, to moisten, from hu-mectus, moist, from hu-me-re, to be moist.” But these versatile materials deserve our respect. They have functions that go far beyond this simplistic definition!
