Derived from sustainable palm.
This is a solid, waxy ester that is used to provide emolliency, substantivity and shine to lipsticks, hair conditioners, moisturisers and lotions. This ingredient is also used as a thickener and rheology modifier in oil-only products such as balms and solid moisturisers.
Adding this to a solid moisturiser can improve glide and after-feel as it creates a less sticky or waxy finish than most waxes.
