* An emollient
Isopropyl Isostearate is the ester of Isopropyl Alcohol and Isostearic Acid(CosmeticsInfo.org). It is used in beauty products as an emollient, skin conditioning agent, binder and humectant. It helps lock in moisture and gives skin a smooth feel, according to Vaseline.com, and acts as a lubricant on the skin's surface to give it a soft and silky appearance.
Safety Measures/Side Effects:
According to RealSelf.com, the CIR Expert Panel CIR concluded that Isopropyl Isostearates are not sensitizers or photosensitizers, and are not carcinogenic. These esters, undiluted or at use concentrations, produced, at most, slight skin irritation but not sensitization, and were safe as a cosmetic ingredient. The Environmental Working Group also gave Isopropyl Isosotearate a 100% safety rating.
