So, what is isopropyl palmitate?

Isopropyl palmitate is a versatile ingredient commonly used in the cosmetic and skincare industries for its emollient properties. It is a synthetic ester of isopropyl alcohol and palmitic acid, a fatty acid derived from palm oil. Isopropyl palmitate is a clear, colorless liquid that is easily absorbed into the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. It also has a light, non-greasy texture, making it an ideal ingredient for lotions, creams, and other personal care products. Additionally, isopropyl palmitate can be used as a solvent for other ingredients, helping to improve their stability and shelf life.
