Dicaprylyl carbonate

* A soild, plant-derived fat. Sometimes referred to as the trademark name Cetiol® CC.

Functions:

A skin conditioner and emollient that works by providing a protective film and enhancing the skin's lipid layer. It's often categorized as a "dry emollient" because of its ability to moisturize the skin, making it feel soft and smooth without leaving a greasy residue behind.  It has excellent spreadability, and leaves a dry, velvety feel to the skin similar to how a silicone would. Furthermore, it emulsifier easily and, has long-term emulsion stability and facilitates the application of slow spreading ingredients. For this reason, it's often used in sunscreens containing ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, an ingredient that is notoriously difficult to spread over the skin. You can find this ingredient in various personal care products such as facial moisturizer/lotion, sunscreen, anti-aging treatment, rosacea treatment, eye cream, baby oil and cleanser.
