Isopropyl Myristate is a synthetic oil used as an emollient, thickening agent, or lubricant in beauty products. Composed of Isopropyl Alcohol (a propane derivative) and Myristic Acid (a naturally-occurring fatty acid), Isopropyl Myristate is a popular cosmetic and pharmaceutical ingredient. It is most often used as an additive in aftershaves, shampoos, bath oils, antiperspirants, deodorants, oral hygiene products, and various creams and lotions. What makes it such an interesting product is its ability to reduce the greasy and oily feel from high oil content of other ingredients. Isopropyl Myristate is easily absorbed into the skin, and can help facilitate absorption of other ingredients in a formula. Isopropyl Myristate is a non-hazardous colorless liquid with a faint, typical odor, and is insoluble in water. If beauty is only skin deep, then allow Parchem to assist you in making that skin as beautiful as possible.
