Lauryl Laurate is a low molecular weight natural wax-like ester that is compatible with most cosmetic ingredients. It is made from a mixture of coconut and palm oils (RSPO certified sustainable). It is made by Koster Keunen and is certified by the Natural Products Association (NPA) and accepted by the strictest guidelines in the natural community.
Lauryl Laurate is a solid, fast melting ester that will give a dry and powdery feel on the skin and when combined with other oils and esters it will help to "de-grease" formulations while still providing slip. When a formula containing it touches the skin, this ester melts giving instant glide. Consider using in place of Isopropyl Myristate (IPM) in formulations where an "All Natural" claim is desired.
Lauryl Laurate can be used as a natural replacement for light weight silicones.
It is useful in the development of natural cosmetics and personal care products.
