* A wax ester
Myristyl Myristate is a naturally derived ester, formed by the combination of Myristyl Alcohol and Myristic Acid, which occurs naturally in animal or vegetable fats or oils. It is originally formed as a white or yellowish waxy solid, and is used as a skin conditioning agent, emulsifier and opacifier in skin care products and cosmetics, according to CosmeticsInfo.org.
It provides a pleasant, soft feel to formulas, as well as an excellent dry, powdery after-feel to lotions and creams, according to research. Myristyl Myristate is an excellent emulsion enhancer that imparts a white opacifying effect or glossy appearance, and is an effective thickening agent as well.
Safety Measures/Side Effects:
Myristyl Myristate is considered safe and is approved by the CIR for use in cosmetics. The EWG reports a 95% safety rating for it, although some studies have linked it to mild irritation when applied to skin directly.
