Use & Benefits:

Myristyl myristate has many functions in cosmetic products. It functions as an emollient in products like creams, lotions and hair care products. When applied it forms a protective film on the skin and forms a barrier protecting against damage caused by external factors like dirt and microbes. It also reduces the loss of moisture from the skin and also hair and keep them well hydrated. It is also useful as a texture enhancer in skin products. When used it gets nicely spread on the skin surface, gives it a soft and waxy feel. It increases the spreading ability of the product, reduces the watery feel of lotions and creams. Its emulsifying properties prevent the oil and water-based components of the product from getting separated. It is suitable for use over a wide range of pH values and compatible with cationic, anionic and non-ionic surfactants too. It is used in products like soaps, creams, lotions, hair conditioners, and shaving creams.
