Isopropyl Myristate

Isopropyl Myristate is one of the key ingredients in San Shield, and it offers multiple benefits for skin care, such as providing smoothness, softness, and moisturization to the skin. Specifically, here are several key aspects of how Isopropyl Myristate works:


Moisture retention and moisturizing:

Isopropyl Myristate is a highly effective moisturizer with humectant properties. It has the ability to absorb moisture from the air and lock it into the skin’s stratum corneum, increasing the skin’s hydration and maintaining a balanced moisture level. This ability helps to keep the skin moisturized, preventing water loss and reducing the discomfort and tightness caused by dryness.


Surface smoothing and softening:

Isopropyl Myristate forms a thin film on the skin’s surface, which has smoothing and softening properties. It has the ability to fill in fine lines and pores, making the skin appear smoother and reducing the rough texture and unevenness of the skin. Additionally, this thin film improves the skin’s texture, making it feel softer to the touch.


Anti-irritation and soothing effects:

Isopropyl Myristate also has certain anti-irritation and soothing properties. It helps to reduce the damage caused by external irritants, alleviate skin discomfort, and relieve inflammation caused by environmental stressors, UV exposure, and other irritants. This helps to maintain the skin’s health and minimize the negative impact of external irritants on the skin.


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.
