So, what is isocetyl palmitate?

Isocetyl palmitate is a fatty acid ester that is commonly used as an emollient in skincare and cosmetic products. It is derived from a mixture of isocetyl alcohol and palmitic acid, both of which are found naturally in plants and animals. Isocetyl palmitate has a smooth, silky texture and is easily absorbed into the skin, making it an ideal ingredient for moisturizers, lotions, and other skincare formulations. It helps to soften and smooth the skin while also providing a protective barrier against moisture loss. Isocetyl palmitate is non-irritating and non-comedogenic, making it suitable for all skin types.
