So, what is isopropyl stearate?

Isopropyl stearate is a common ingredient in various cosmetic and personal care products, including lotions, moisturizers, and sunscreens. This colorless and odorless ester is derived from stearic acid and isopropyl alcohol. It functions as an emollient, which means it helps to soften and soothe the skin by forming a protective barrier. Isopropyl stearate is easily absorbed into the skin, leaving it feeling smooth and hydrated without any greasiness. Its light texture also makes it a popular choice in hair care products, where it can add shine and improve manageability.
