So, what is cetyl myristate?

Cetyl myristate is a waxy substance commonly used in the cosmetics and skincare industry. It is a combination of cetyl alcohol and myristic acid, two naturally occurring fatty acids found in coconut and palm oils. Cetyl myristate has emollient properties, which means it helps to soften and smooth the skin by forming a protective barrier to prevent moisture loss. It also has a silky, non-greasy texture, making it a popular ingredient in lotions, creams, and other personal care products. Additionally, cetyl myristate can be used as a thickener or emulsifier in some formulations.
