Product description:

Sucragel AOF is a clear yellow liquid with a slight aroma. !00% vegetable origin combining palm-derived glycerin sources from the nut oil of the karanja tree. Sweet almond oil water from oranges and sugar esters.
All plant sources are non GMO and it is PEG free. Readily biodegradable.
Ingredients ratio of Sucragel AOF
Glycerin 50-60%
Prunus Amygdallus dulcis (sweet almond oil 25-35%
Sucrose laurate 5-8%
Citrus Aurantium Dulis (orange ) fruit water 1-5%

It makes oil in water (O/W) emulsions as an emulsifier but also thickens oils to give a thick texture.
Although the emulsifier contains water. It does not need a preservative in this state as the ratio of water to glycerine keeps the product protected.
When it is used with fats only, it still does not need a preservative.
As soon as you add water, you need to add a preservative.
Sucragel AOF is sensitive to pH extremes and is stable between pH4 to pH8.
Produced in the Uk which gives it a lower carbon footprint.
The individual materials that make up Sucragel AOF are listed on the Cosmetic Database.

How to Use
Skincare
A gelee made with Sucra gel AOF gives continual skin hydration for up to 8 hours after it has been applied. Glycerine is a excellent humectant that helps to keep the skin hydrated. As Sucragel AOF contains up to at least 50% glycerine you don’t need to add any more glycerine to your formulations.
By using 6% of the emulsifier you will have 3% glycerine in your cream already. It is an excellent emulsifier to use in rinse off cleansers and makeup removers.
Sucragel AOF is afe for sensitive skin and baby products.
Makes bath oils that emulsify into “bath blooms”

Hair Care
Use 6% to 99%
Sucragel AOF is water soluble but will hold and thicken oils in an oily blend.
Bath Bloom 99% Sucragel AOF to 1% essential oils.
Bath serum 15% Sucragel AOF to 85% mixed oils and essential oils plus 5% exfoliant.
If using solid fats or butters, melt first and combine with other heat tolerant oils before combining with Sucragel AOF.
Heat safe up to 80C. Use a double boiler and do not heat higher than this as it will damage the sugar emulsifier.

Sucragel AOF is water soluble but will hold and thicken oils in an oil only blend.
Bath Bloom 99% Sucragel AOF to 1% essential oils.
Bath Serum 15% Sucragel AOF to 85% mixed oils and essential oils.
Gel Scrub 25% Sucragel AOF to 70% mixed oils and essential oils plus 5% exfoliant.
If using solid fats or butters melt first and combine with other heat tolerant oils before combining with the Sucragel AOF.
Heat safe up to 80C. Use a double boiler and do not heat higher than this as it will damage the sugar in the emulsifier.
Do not combine with salts as an exfoliant this will cause the emulsifier to separate.
Finished products made with Sucragel AOF should be kept above pH45 and below pH 8 or to ensure the emulsion remains stable.
To make an oily gelee. Stir the Sucragel AOF so that it starts to go slightly opaque.
Combine ALL of the fat/oil ingredients and mix together to be consistent.

A typical ratio would be 25% Sucragel AOF to 76% mixed oils. Add a small amount to the Sucragel AOF while stirring quickly.
The mixed oils will be absorbed into the emulsifier like a sponge. An electric mixer with a small spiral dough hook is excellent for this.
We have found that a stick blender is too fast . Continue to add small amounts of oil and stir in until all ingredients are absorbed.
The gelee should thicken more after oil addition.
The higher the ratio of the Sucragel AOF that is used , the thinner the resulting oil gelee will be.
To make a cream texture water needs to be added.
When the oil gelee is mixed with water. It emulsifies immediately into a very thin runny milk, it loses all texture.
Therefore to get the texture in a cream you need to add thickened water(a gel) to the oily gelee.
The resulting cream will be a little looser than the thickness of the water gel you added.
