So, what is lauryl isostearate?

Lauryl isostearate is a versatile emollient and skin-conditioning agent commonly used in cosmetics and personal care products. It is a colorless to pale yellow liquid that is derived from the fatty acids of coconut oil and isostearic acid. Lauryl isostearate is known for its ability to improve the texture and feel of formulations by enhancing their spreadability and moisturizing properties. It is also resistant to oxidation, which makes it an ideal ingredient for products that require a long shelf life. This ingredient is safe for topical use and is generally well-tolerated by all skin types, making it a popular choice in skincare and beauty products.
