So, what is isostearyl lactate?

Isostearyl lactate is a natural ingredient commonly used in cosmetics and personal care products due to its excellent moisturizing properties. It is derived from a blend of isostearic acid and lactic acid, making it a unique compound that helps improve the skin's barrier function and prevents moisture loss. Isostearyl lactate is non-greasy and easily absorbed by the skin, leaving it soft and supple. It is often used in skin creams, lotions, and lip balms to provide long-lasting hydration and nourishment. This versatile ingredient is also used in hair care products to improve the texture and manageability of hair.
