Glyceryl monostearate is a self emulsifying wax. It is located in dozens of personal care products, including moisturizers, eye cream, sunscreen, makeup and hand creams. Direct Chems provide GMS SE which is self emulsifying in pearl form and can be used as a viscosity enhancer adding emollient properties which makes skin softer and supple.

GMS also acts as a fast penetrating emollient which helps retain hydration, lubricate, condition and soften skin. They slow loss of moisture so is ideal when adding to natural formulations. The presence of GMS enables other ingredients in the formulation to continue functioning effectively in order to excel their beneficial properties by extending shelf life, preventing products from freezing and developing crusts on the surface. One important factor is GMS allows oils to be added to products but decreases the greasiness so the final product is a smooth, creamy texture.

Please note- Packed in a warehouse where soy wax is handled. Seek medical advice before use if suffering from any medical conditions or allergies. Always conduct a patch test before using any new product.

Storage- Store in a cool dry place away from sunlight.
