So, what is aluminum triisostearate?

Aluminum triisostearate is a white, waxy substance that is commonly used in cosmetic formulations as an emollient and thickening agent. It is derived from isostearic acid, which is a type of fatty acid found in many plant oils. This ingredient has excellent spreadability and helps to create a smooth, silky texture in creams, lotions, and other skincare products. Additionally, aluminum triisostearate has the ability to absorb excess oil, making it a popular choice in products designed for oily or acne-prone skin. Despite its name, this ingredient is not an aluminum salt and is considered safe for use in cosmetics.
