Caprylic acid, the ingredient used to make caprylylcarbonate, is derived from coconut oil.

It has high spreading properties and leaves a dry, velvety feel to the skin and does not leave oily film on the skin.

The multifunctional dry emollient

  • Supports the incorporation of powders
  • Solubility for crystalline UV filters
  • Has a good perfume and propellant solubility and good pH stability, thus suitable for AP/Deo application, especially for liquid systems
  • Improved make-up remover efficacy in facial cleansing lotions
  • Dispersing performance for pigments
  • Suitable for alternative concepts to silicone
  • Good skin compatibility with a dry, cushiony skin feel

Dicaprylyl carbonate is desirable for products such as facial moisturizers because it spreads easily and leaves a velvety feel on skin without seeming greasy or slick. It also helps enhance the absorption of other ingredients in a cosmetic formula.
