What is Isopropyl myristate?

Isopropyl myristate is an ester derived from isopropyl alcohol and myristic acid. It is a low viscosity, fluid grade emollient. It is useful in a wide pH range and blends well with other surfactants. It comes as a colorless, no odor oil-like liquid. It’s low density and viscosity gives good spreadability. It is mainly a product of vegetable origin.

Use & Benefits:

It is used in bath, baby and body oils since it is a superior emollient, it gives gloss and shines to hair. Moreover, it has a higher capacity to withstand oxidation, so it can provide a good shelf life. It can be used as a diluent i.e. to make up the volume up to certain limit that can be handled easily. It is also used in the fragrance oil. It can also be used as a lubricant, which can improve flow of powdery material. This helps uniform dispersion of dose in a particular formula. It is used as a compression aid for pressed powder, light and non-tacky for creams and lotions. It has a benefit of its smaller size that it penetrates readily into the skin. In higher concentration, can be used as a make up remover and cleanser. It is used in shower gels, makeup removers, powders, and foundations, aftershaves, antiperspirants, hand creams, creams, and lotions.
