Safety Measures/Side Effects:

There are no major side effects associated with Ethylhexyl Palmitate, although irritation or allergic reaction can occur from products containing this ingredient. The Cosmetic Ingredient Review expert panel found that in skin tests with the Palmitates and with products containing the Palmitates, one of three products containing 40%-50% Ethylhexyl Palmitate produced mild irritation. However, no skin care product contains this high concentration of the ingredient (Source).
