Sucroesters

Sucrose esters

The STÉARINERIE DUBOIS Company has developed a new range of innovative, versatile and 100% natural products: sucrose esters.
The outstanding properties of sucrose esters are at the top of interest in cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food industries because they exceed widely the simple surfactant action.

Sucrose esters are fatty esters of sucrose, obtained via transesterification of methyl esters.

Sucrose esters are non-ionic emulsifiers with a wide range of HLB values: from 3 to 16.
The HLB value depends on the degree of esterification: according to conditions, mono, di, tri and polyesters of sucrose are synthetized.
Due to their amphiphilic nature, only mono,di and triesters are valuable in cosmetic formulations.
Sucrose esters are particularly recommended to cosmetic and food products regarding their numerous properties.


Sucrose esters are :

  • stable up to 120°C - 130°C (usual decomposition temperature 240°C) and in aqueous solution with a pH range between 7 and 12,
  • non toxic and synthethized without the very toxic solvent DMF
  • non irritant (excellent compatibility with skin, eyes and mucous membranes) ; they have been defined as “physiological emulsifiers" because they do not alter the skin lipid layer and have no effect on natural skin pH unlike sulfated and ethylated surfactants ,
  • compatible with a broad range of food and cosmetic constituents (dairy proteins, wheat flour, anionic, non-ionic and quaternary surfactants , active ingredients, conservatives, anti-septic substances, powder formulations compounds,...),
  • biodegradable, easily and rapidly released without any environment hazard thanks to the widely present raw materials (sucrose and fatty acids) in Nature,


Food industry appreciates particularly the tasteless and odorless sucrose esters for their emulsifying, lubricating, wetting, dispersing and texturizing properties. Sucrose esters are approved as food additives E473.
Sucrose esters are recommended in dairy products and derivatives for their good affinity with dairy proteins.
They are interesting texturizing agents added to wheat flour containing products (a complexe with starch is formed): conditioning effect, anti-sticking effect (surface lubricant) and smoothing agent (starch solidification is avoided). They allow controlling starch behavior by avoiding starch solidification when heated for a better production yield and by moderating dough rise to obtain crusty products.
Cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries are currently discovering the abundance of applications of sucrose esters: efficient emulsifiers, moisturizers, thickeners, soft detergents, foam stabilizers, emulsion stabilizers (W/O and O/W), anti-irritating agents with anionic surfactants, good affinity with pigments...
Moreover sucrose esters are also good emollient, hydrating and film-forming agents which give a soft and silky feel.
They can be used in creams, lotions, baby products, make up (anhydrous products and emulsions), toiletries, hair care products... and more according to the formulator’s imagination.
