This saturated fatty acid is derived from the golden palm kernel oil or the sweet-smelling coconut oil and is one of the finest surfactants as it maintains a balance between cleaning and protecting the skin and hair. It is widely employed for use by personal care, cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical industries.

Benefits and Uses:

  • You can find this in-your-face wash, body wash, makeup removers and wipes, toners, creams, and lotions, etc. due to its gentle oil cleansing action.
  • It removes makeup and oil from your face without stripping the skin off the moisture that it holds.
  • It’s a bonus when added to conditioners since it acts as a conditioning agent and protects your hair from environmental damage.
  • When added to any formulation it acts as an emulsifier and is responsible for the creamy texture of the product.
  • It also provides stability and makes the formulation opaque thereby preventing early oxidation.

How it Works: 

  • It acts as a surfactant and attracts dust, dirt, and grime from the surface, and cleanses it.
  • It acts as an emulsifier and prevents oil and water from separating in the formulation.
