PPG 2 Myristyl Ether Propionate
PPG 2 Myristyl Ether Propionate is an ingredient made by combining glycols with fatty alcohols. It is most often used as a skin-conditioning agent or emollient, and is also seen as a thickening agent in some skin care and cosmetic formulas (CosmeticsCop.com).
According to chemical supplier The Personal Formulator, PPG 2 Myristyl Ether Propionate "forms cohesive uniform films that lack the occulsiveness of heavy oils, like mineral oils, enabling it to provide a more pleasing skin feel." It is a non-oily, dry emollient that is easily mixed and spreadable. PPG 2 Myristyl Ether Propionate is often used in sunscreen formulas because of its dry properties, as well as other heavy cream formulas that cannot have oily, runny properties.
