So, what is glyceryl caprylate?

Glyceryl caprylate is a natural ester derived from glycerin and caprylic acid, commonly used as an emulsifier, surfactant, and preservative in cosmetics, personal care, and food products. It helps to stabilize and enhance the texture of formulations, while also exhibiting antimicrobial properties that can prolong the shelf life of products. Glyceryl caprylate is a mild, non-irritating ingredient that is often favored by formulators for its ability to improve the sensory experience of products, without compromising their safety or efficacy. This versatile ingredient is also eco-friendly, biodegradable, and suitable for use in vegan and organic formulations.
