So, what is hydrogenated didecene?

Hydrogenated didecene is a synthetic compound derived from didecene, which is a mixture of 10-carbon and 12-carbon olefins. It is commonly used as an emollient and thickening agent in cosmetic products due to its ability to enhance texture and smoothness. Hydrogenation involves the addition of hydrogen atoms to the double bonds, resulting in a more stable and solid form. While it may improve the sensory experience of beauty products, the process of hydrogenation can lead to the formation of trans fats, which are linked to various health concerns.
