Abstract: The authors describe how to test an ingredient for its potential as a skin care emulsion platform using, as an example, a new starch-based ingredient called hydroxypropyl starch phosphate.

A whole series of emulsion platform technologies are available to skin care formulators. To gain acceptance, a novel emulsion platform technology would ideally maximize these features.

  • Flexibility in use;
  • Compatibility with other ingredients;
  • Viability throughout a broad pH range;
  • Viability throughout a wide temperature range;
  • Rheology modification and co-emulsification under a wide range of formulation and product conditions;
  • A pleasing skin feel.
