Span 83 Uses

1. Span 83 is used to prepare a kind of whitening microemulsion, more specifically, the whitening microemulsion contains: sorbitan sesquioleate (Span 83) and PEG-20-sorbitan oleic acid; a or more oily components selected from hydrocarbon oils, synthetic oil esters, animal and vegetable oils, silicone oils and mixtures thereof; polyols and water; one or more water-soluble whitening raw materials. The microemulsion prepared by the invention is a water-in-oil system, has good stability, can be stored for a long time, has a good solubilizing effect on water-soluble whitening raw materials, and can be made into a product with high functional components.

2. Span 83 is used to prepare a BB cream with dense silica-coated pearl powder, which is composed of bis-PEKG/PPKG-14/14 polydimethylsiloxane, sorbitan sesquioleate Disc 83), Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, Isononyl Iononanoate, Titanium Dioxide, Dense Silica Coated Pearl Powder, Quaternary Ammonium Salt-18 Bentonite, Iron Oxide, Glycerin, butanediol, sodium chloride, methylparaben, propylparaben, disodium EDTA, algae extract, bis(hydroxymethyl)imidazolidinyl urea, essence and deionized water were mixed, emulsified and homogenized. to make. The process of the invention is simple, the pearl powder coated with dense silicon dioxide is used to replace the mineral powder in the traditional BB cream, the damage to the cosmetic emulsification system caused by the direct addition of the pearl powder can be avoided, and it can not only cover defects, isolate and protect, but also provide skin care. Comes with deep-level pearl nutrients, nourishes and moisturizes, and increases skin elasticity; it has a good whitening effect, and gives full play to the whitening, isolation, anti-radiation and other effects of pearl powder.

3. Span 83 is used to prepare an anti-allergic microemulsion, and the anti-allergic microemulsion contains: sorbitan sesquioleate (Span 83) and PEG-60 sorbitan stearate; a or more oily components selected from hydrocarbon oils, synthetic oil esters, animal and vegetable oils, silicone oils and mixtures thereof; polyols and water; one or more water-soluble anti-allergic raw materials. The microemulsion is a water-in-oil system, has good stability, can be stored for a long time, has a good solubilizing effect on water-soluble anti-allergic raw materials, and can be made into a product with high functional components.

4. Span 83 is used to prepare a whitening and nursing smear, which is composed of the following components in parts by mass: 26-30 parts of methylparaben, 28-32 parts of Pueraria lobata extract, 24 parts of phenyltrimethylsilane ~28 parts, sorbitan sesquioleate (Span 83) 22~26 parts, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 is 28~32 parts, shea butter 24~28 parts, polydimethylsiloxane 22 ~26 parts, 28-32 parts of seaweed extract, 24-28 parts of ceramide, 22-26 parts of pentaerythritol stearate, 28-32 parts of homosalate, 24-28 parts of calcium hydrogen phosphate, isononanoate 24-28 parts of nonyl ester, 22-26 parts of stearyl trimethyl ammonium chloride, and 10,000-20,000 parts of water. The preparation process of the whitening and nursing smear is simple, the prepared product has a relatively superior whitening effect, the product can effectively accelerate the renewal of skin surface cells, the whitening and nursing effect is remarkable, the skin is not irritated, the skin elasticity is good after use, and the beauty is good. Good care.

5. Span 83 is used for preparing a stable, water-resistant and breathable liquid foundation, which relates to the technical field of cosmetics.

The liquid foundation of the invention has no heavy feeling when applied to the face, is breathable and comfortable, does not feel dry on the skin after being applied, has good adhesion, strong water and sweat resistance, is not easy to remove makeup, and can create a skin beautifying effect.

Span 83 Production Method

Put 1 mol of sorbitol into the reactor, dehydrate under reduced pressure, then press the refined oleic acid into the reactor, and then add a catalyst amount of sodium hydroxide. Under stirring, vacuumize, gradually heat up to about 200 °C, and maintain the reaction for 8 h. Take a sample to measure the acid value, and the esterification reaction ends when the acid value reaches about 12. Cool and stand for 24 hours. After the reaction liquid is layered, the dark liquid of the lower layer is thrown away, and the upper layer of liquid is poured into the decolorization kettle, and decolorized with hydrogen peroxide at 50-60° C. for 1 h. Continue to vacuum dehydration, dehydration at 110 ℃ for 5 hours, the reaction is completed, and the finished product is discharged and filled.
