For better control of the final product viscosity and consistency, a thickening agent is often used in combination with an emulsifying base. These agents improve and stabilize the product consistency during stability testing at elevated temperatures.
Emollients enhance the cosmetic feel and appearance of topical products. Depending on the choice of emollient, it is possible to create a richer or dryer feel, whichever is desired. The appropriate choice of emollient will increase spreadibility without leaving a greasy film on the skin. Gattefossé's emollients can also replace mineral oils, as they are occlusive and tend to increase skin keratinisation.
