Abstract: Olive oil and hydrolyzed wheat protein can be combined to form a lipoprotein that functions as an emulsifier and a "green" surfactant.

The increasing use of products that contain no polyoxyethylene has led to the creation of new classes of basic materials that are of natural origin and free of ethylene oxide, but at the same time versatile and with pleasing cosmetic qualities. One of the classes receiving a lot of attantion is the lipoproteins.
