INCI: Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2
Function: Emollient for barrier repair and water-resistance. A good film former and conditioner.
Application: This is a thick, rich emollient with a tacky nature similar to Lanolin but derived from non-animal sources (vegetable oils). Like lanolin this emollient has an excellent water-absorption capacity of at least 170% (so 10% of this ingredient can absorb 17% of water). Due to this water holding capacity this ingredient can be used to help stabilise emulsions or to help incorporate a little bit of water or honey into an oil balm.
Material Origin: Vegetable Fatty Acids (caprylic, Capric, Stearic and Isostearic Acid) reacted with Adipic Acid to form a diester. This ingredient is made from natural and synthetic sources. Not suitable for use in a Certified Organic formula.
Solubility: Miscible with fats, oils and hydrocarbons.
Melting Point: 40°C
Formulating Ideas: Colour Cosmetics, Lip Care, Sunscreen, Hair Conditioning, Moisturising Creams, Barrier Creams and Hand Care.
