* An emollient


Isohexadecane is a high purity, iso-paraffin emollient and solvent used in cosmetics and beauty products. Although it is colorless and odorless, it creates a very creamy, thick formula. However, for all of its rich texture, Isohexadecane leaves a non-greasy, light and silky feeling on the skin. It is most often found in foundations, sun care products, lip products, deodorants and antiperspirants and makeup removers (source).

Safety Measures/Side Effects:

There are no safety measures or warnings associated with the use of Isohexadecane . A study was published in Contact Dermatitis in 2004 that concluded that Isohexadecane does not cause contact dermatitis.

Recommended Products With Isohexadecane:

Skin Nutrition Cell CPR ($170 in the shop), Your Best Face Define ($70 in the shop), Osmotics Lipofill Non-Surgical Filler ($73)

As much as possible, products in the Truth In Aging shop are chosen for their safety profile as well as effectiveness.
