Emulsification Of Coconut And Palm-Kernel Oils: Effect Of Surfactant Type And Physico-Chemical Properties Of The Oils
Liquid — liquid dispersions towards emulsions of cosmetic products have been adequately documented in respect of mineral oil like liquid paraffin, while the Nigerian Vegetable oils. for example, palm- kernel and coconut oils still need adequate investigation for effective use in cosmetic products. Primarily, oil-in-water emulsions are preferred hence the search for theeffectiveness of different types of surfactants on liquid/liquid dispersions of the oils. Surfactants - Tween 40 (nonionicj Manoxol OT (anionic) and cetrimide (cationic) were each utilized at 5% w/w for the emulsification of palm-kernel and coconut oils.
