Dodecane is a high-purity, linear, petrolatum-free, vegetable derived paraffin made from renewable resources. It can be used as a direct alternative to petrolatum or paraffin, and is an exceptional non-polar solvent or oil alternative for environmentally-friendly formulations. Dodecane is completely soluble in oils and solvents, and is fast absorbing with a light skin feel.  Dodecane can help alter the texture of creams and lotions to be less greasy/oily feeling. 

Dodecane improves coverage, consistency, pigment wetting & enhancement in cosmetics, and is compatible with silicones, UV filters and lipophilic systems.
