INCI: Ethylhexyl Palmitate
Octyl Palmitate (Ethylhexyl Palmitate) in skin care products gives the skin a soft smooth feel and appearance without feeling greasy. It serves as an excellent alternative to silicone in your cosmetics.
Octyl Palmitate is a palm-derived ester. It is what is known as a dry emollient - giving you that moisturizing feel without the greasiness. Octyl Palmitate's light emollient properties and high refractive index (a measure of shine) also lends itself to hair care products where esters or oils are called for.
