In recent years, there has been an increased interest in the potential and benefits of cold-processable emulsifiers and blends as cosmetics consumers demand more eco-friendly processes and products (Cosmetics & Toiletries).

What is Cold Processing?

Cold processing is a greener production method whereby cosmetics products can be emulsified at room temperature without the need to heat ingredients to degradation.
