So, what is ethyl oleate?

Ethyl oleate is a clear, colorless liquid that is often used as a solvent, flavoring agent, and carrier in the food industry. It is a fatty acid ester, consisting of oleic acid and ethanol. Ethyl oleate is also used in the manufacturing of personal care products, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics due to its excellent solvency and ability to penetrate the skin. In addition to its functional properties, ethyl oleate is known for its mild, fruity aroma, making it a popular ingredient in the formulation of fragrances and perfumes. Despite its many applications, ethyl oleate is generally recognized as safe for consumption by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
