INCI: Zinc ricinoleate/Glyceryl ricinoleate

What is Zinc ricinoleate/Glyceryl ricinoleate?

Ricinoleate is a synthetic compound that is an ester of ricinoleic acid. Ricinoleic acid naturally occurs in oils such as castor oil, which is obtained from the seeds of the plant Ricinus communis. Ricinoleate and its salts, such as zinc ricinoleate and glyceryl ricinoleate, are widely used in a variety of cosmetic products

Use & Benefits:

Zinc Ricinoleate:
•    Functions as a deodorizing agent in cosmetic products.
•    Masks the unpleasant odor of the product ingredients.
•    Functions as an anti-caking and opacifying agent.
•    Prevents the formation of lumps in powdered and granular products.
Glyceryl Ricinoleate:
•    Functions as an emollient and emulsifier in cosmetic products.
•    Acts as an emollient by filling the gaps between dead skin cells and making the skin appear soft and smoother.
•    Forms a thin film on the surface of the skin, creating a barrier that protects against allergens, bacteria, and irritants that penetrate deeper layers of the skin.
•    Acts as an emulsifier by giving stability to products that contain oil and water-based components.
•    Prevents separation of the components and enables even distribution of the product components when used.
•    Used in formulations of creams, lotions, gels, shampoos, conditioners, make-up products, and other skin and hair care products.
