Nano olive oil as potential silicone substitute

Vietnamese outfit Wakamono is developing Nano Olive Oil, which it says is extracted from natural ingredients, safe and friendly to environment and has the potential to completely replace or reduce the use of silicone and polyquaternium in shampoo while maintaining product effectiveness

The combination of nanotechnology and organic ingredients in the cosmetic industry results in more advantageous outcomes than traditional methods. In 2020, Nam Hai Lai et al, in the ‘Process for producing micro emulsion system of Nano essential oil’ study,1 described a process for producing a micro- emulsion system of nano essential oil, which allows the formation of uniformly-sized droplets capable of dissolution and long-term stability in water with no activity or structure changes.

This helps to increase the use efficiency of essential oils, namely increasing the absorption and bioavailability that are applicable on an industrial scale. Thus, nanotechnology improves stability, high absorption, and creates a watersoluble oil system for cosmetic products.

Accordingly, Wakamono Corporation of Vietnam is developing Nano Olive Oil featuring triglycerides that retain the oil’s abilities such as nutrition, moisturising, keeping hair glossy, and safety. These have been evaluated by ten studies at independent laboratories. The purpose of the tests is to provide an efficacy comparison between a shampoo with Nano Olive Oil and other shampoos containing silicone products.
