So, what is myristyl myristate?

Myristyl myristate is a natural fatty acid ester derived from myristic acid and myristyl alcohol. It is commonly used as an emollient, texture enhancer, and emulsifier in cosmetics and personal care products. This ingredient has a smooth and silky texture, making it a popular choice for skincare formulations. Myristyl myristate helps to improve the spreadability of creams and lotions while providing a soft and velvety feel to the skin. It also acts as a lubricant, helping to reduce friction between the skin and other materials. Due to its mild and non-irritating nature, myristyl myristate is suitable for all skin types.
