So, what is octyldodecyl stearoyl stearate?

Octyldodecyl stearoyl stearate is a synthetic wax-like substance commonly used in the cosmetics and personal care industries as a thickening agent, emollient, and skin conditioning agent. It is derived from stearic acid, a natural fatty acid found in animal and vegetable fats. This ingredient has a unique molecular structure that allows it to penetrate deep into the skin, providing long-lasting moisture without leaving a greasy residue. Octyldodecyl stearoyl stearate is also known for its silky smooth texture, which makes it a popular ingredient in many skincare and makeup products, including foundations, powders, and lipsticks.
