Isopropyl Myristate

Isopropyl Myristate is a compound that is widely used in cosmetics and personal care products as an emollient and solvent. It is formed through the reaction of isopropyl alcohol and myristic acid ester.

Primary functions:


Isopropyl Myristate has excellent moisturizing properties, helping to maintain skin hydration and leaving the skin soft and smooth. It can effectively moisturize dry skin and provide long-lasting moisturization upon application.


Isopropyl Myristate has good solubility and can be used as a solvent for other ingredients or drugs. It helps to mix other components together and facilitates their penetration and absorption into the skin.

In addition, Isopropyl Myristate has other characteristics:

  1. Provides a silky feel: It imparts a smooth, silky texture to products, making them easier to spread and apply.

  2. Enhances skin radiance: Isopropyl Myristate can form a thin film on the skin surface, providing a smooth appearance and improving overall skin radiance.


It’s important to note that everyone’s reaction to these ingredients may vary. It is recommended to perform a patch test on a small area of skin before using any new product to ensure there are no adverse reactions.
