Soy Lecithin as an emulsifier

Soy Lecithin is a food additive that’s extracted from its main source, soy. It can serve a lot of things, depending on where it is used, including acting as a lubricant, a flavor protector, an antioxidant, or as an emulsifier mostly in food. It effectively stabilizes a lot of mixtures as an emulsifier, so it is often a go-to ingredient in food and cosmetic manufacturing. You will only use a small amount in this homemade face moisturizer.

Description

When it comes to cosmetics, lecithins from a soy lecithin basis are used primarily as emulsifiers but also have moisturizing properties. They also stabilize the barrier layer of the skin and restructure the skin’s natural properties. Soy lecithins are ideally suited for non-greasy, mattifying emulsions with a high protective nature and water repellency, for example,  hand creams. They are also often used as a skin softener in foot creams to make rough skin luxuriously soft.

A very light cream with lecithin cannot be made unless you use other emulsifiers. You can also combine beeswax or vegetable butter with lecithin. This naturally gives you more product stability without using any potentially toxic chemicals.

  • Lecithin emulsion cream is a good night cream because it protects and moisturizes the skin very effectively.
  • Lecithin can be used in hair products to treat dry and damaged hair.
  • Lecithin products have been used to treat skin problems such as acne and eczema
  • Lecithin creams are very suitable for baby care as they are natural and well-tolerated.
  • Lecithin may be added to skin serums. Lecithin helps to deliver active ingredients deeper into the skin

You can add small amounts of lecithin to the facial lotions. It helps the facial lotions to soften the skin and create a matte, non-shiny finish on the skin. Please bear in mind that lecithin colours the facial water grey.
