In this video, I discuss how to create high internal phase (HIP) emulsions, which are water in oil emulsions with an elegant sensory profile. The techniques shown in this video allow you to create HIP water in oil emulsions with more than 80 percent water phase materials. Click below to see these techniques at work in both a silicone-based and non-silicone-based formulation.
HIP emulsions offer:
- an initial “quick break” sensation with high consumer appeal
- cushiony rub out time
- silky, not greasy after feel
Advantages of HIP emulsions
- Relatively cheap to create
- High input of water-based actives
- Cost effective yet highly efficacious formulas
- Clinically proven moisture protective properties
- Advanced protection from Trans-Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL)
- Tri-phase sensory profile
