MONTANE™ products are sorbitan esters.
These lipophilic surfactants are used as emulsifiers to formulate water/oil emulsions.
MONTANE™ products are stable in slightly acidic or basic media and are compatible with other surfactants.
They can be used alone or combined with MONTANOX™ to produce highly stable emulsions.
MONTANE™ products can be used in practically all emulsion formulations: creams, ointments, lotions, injectable preparations, etc.
A suitable grade for every application
The MONTANE™ range is composed of monoesters and triesters of lauric, stearate or oleic fatty acids. They are characterised by their HLB (hydrophilic-lipophilic balance) value.
