So, what is tridecyl stearate?

Tridecyl stearate is a waxy substance commonly used in the cosmetic industry as a skin conditioning agent, emollient, and thickening agent. It is derived from a combination of tridecyl alcohol and stearic acid, and is typically found in creams, lotions, and lipsticks. Tridecyl stearate helps to improve the texture and feel of products by reducing greasiness and increasing smoothness. It also helps to moisturize and protect the skin by forming a barrier to prevent moisture loss. Due to its non-greasy nature, tridecyl stearate is an excellent ingredient for creating lightweight, non-oily formulations that are perfect for everyday use.
