Abstract: The effect of molecular structure of four sorbitan monoester surfactants (sorbitan monolaurate, sorbitan monopalmitate, sorbitan monostearate and sorbitan monooleate) on the formation of simple three-component creams is presented. Interfacial properties of the surfactants were determined using a du Nouy tensiometer and rheological properties of selected creams with oscillation stress sweep, creep recovery and viscosity tests. Depending on the composition, sorbitan monolaurate and sorbitan monooleate formed bot…
