DIISOPROPYL DIMER DILINOLEATE
INCI: Diisopropyl dimer dilinoleate
What is Diisopropyl dimer dilinoleate?
Diisopropyl dimer dilinoleate belongs to the group of compounds called dialkyl dimer dilinoleates, which are particularly synthesized via reaction of essential fatty acid and branched or straight-chain alcohol, which then has texture ranging from hazy liquid to waxy solid. Here, Isopropyl alcohol is reacted with dilinoleicacid to produce Diisopropyl dimer dilinoleate. Dilinoleic acid is derived from essential oils obtained from a vegetable source. It actually consists of two molecules of linoleic acid joined together. It comes as clear to slightly hazy liquid.
Use & Benefits:
It acts as a lubricant when applied on any skin surface. Linoleic acid is one of the fat constituents of skin lipid content. So, it gets absorbed quickly through the skin. It gives a smooth and soft feel on the skin. It not only nourishes the skin but also brings a positive change and more intact epidermal cellular formation. Apart from providing skin benefits, it also acts as a dispersing agent, which can evenly spread the constituents like pigments or fragrance molecules. It is used in the formulation of skin care products, cleansing products, facial moisturizer, sunscreen, anti-aging treatment and makeup products like lipstick, lip gloss, eye shadow, and foundation.
