So, what is methyl glucose sesquistearate?

Methyl glucose sesquistearate is a naturally derived ingredient commonly used in personal care products and cosmetics as an emulsifier, stabilizer, and thickener. It is made by combining stearic acid, a fatty acid derived from plant or animal sources, with methyl glucose, a naturally occurring sugar alcohol derived from corn or wheat. This unique compound provides excellent moisturizing properties while improving the texture and consistency of lotions, creams, and other cosmetic formulations. Additionally, it is considered safe for use in personal care products and has a low risk of causing irritation or sensitization in most individuals.
