So, what is tea-myristate?

Tea-myristate is a versatile and natural ingredient used widely in cosmetic and personal care products. It is derived from the esterification of myristic acid and triethanolamine, a process that creates a waxy substance that is easy to handle and has excellent emulsifying properties. Tea-myristate is commonly used in formulations of lotions, creams, and hair care products, where it acts as a moisturizing agent and helps to improve the texture of the product. This ingredient is gentle on the skin and can help to soothe irritation, making it a popular choice in products designed for sensitive skin types. Its emollient properties make it an excellent choice for anti-aging skincare formulations as well.
