So, what is oleyl oleate?

Oleyl oleate is a natural fatty acid ester that is derived from oleyl alcohol and oleic acid, both of which are found in various vegetable oils. It is commonly used in the food industry as a food additive, where it functions as a lubricant, emollient, and thickener. This ingredient is also used in the cosmetic industry for its moisturizing properties. Oleyl oleate is a colorless and odorless liquid that is easily absorbed by the skin, making it a popular ingredient in skincare products. Additionally, it has a high oxidative stability, which makes it a valuable ingredient for extending the shelf life of food products.
