Isopropyl palmitate helps products feel soft and it strengthens their moisturizing effect. 

Isopropyl palmitate is a clear, colorless emollient ester (oily liquid from isopropyl alcohol + palmitic acid) that makes the skin nice and smooth. 
It has very good spreading properties and gives a silky touch to the products.

Isopropyl palmitate is a palm oil-based emollient, derived from coconut oil. 
Isopropyl palmitate is primarily used as a thickening agent in skincare products like moisturizers, sunscreens, and conditioners. 
Isopropyl palmitate also acts as a lubricant on the skin's surface, giving it a smoother appearance and transforming the texture into one that is ultra soft. 
But while isopropyl palmitate is presumed to be safe, there are a few risks to consider before using it on your skin.

Skin and Hair Uses
Isopropyl palmitate is used in skincare to increase the moisture of the skin, making its surface feel smooth to the touch. 
When the skin is effectively moisturized, its tone can look more even and pore size and fine lines may diminish. 
Isopropyl palmitate is also believed to benefit the skin by reducing the risk of eczema and dermatitis. 
This ingredient is also used in haircare to improve luster, quality and silkiness. 
With regular and correct use, hair will become more manageable, feel softer and become healthier.

Side Effects on Skin
Though isopropyl palmitate may provide many skin benefits, these should be weighed with its potential side effects. 
Isopropyl palmitate has been known to cause acne, blackheads, whiteheads and clogged pores if overused. 
Depending on how much of the ingredient is in the product, the skin may experience some irritation. 
Although presumed to be generally safe for cosmetic use when diluted, the ingredient is highly comedogenic when not diluted and should be avoided by those with oily skin.

Side Effects on Hair
Excessive use of products containing isopropyl palmitate on the hair can give it the appearance of untidiness, greasiness and unruliness. 
This is caused by an overabundance of moisture in the hair content. Precautions should be taken when using isopropyl palmitate directly on the scalp. 
If the scalp has an open wound products containing the ingredient should not be used to avoid further irritation.

Alternatives to Isopropyl Palmitate
While steering clear of products labeled "oil-free" can help to avoid the effects of isopropyl palmitate, these items may still contain synthetic oils. 
Check the ingredient's list for natural emollients like cold-pressed plant oils. 
Cocos nucifera, more commonly known as coconut oil, is a suitable alternative. 
It acts similarly to isopropyl palmitate as an emollient and moisturizer and is more suitable for sensitive, irritated and inflamed skin due to its milder properties.

Isopropyl palmitate - Texture enhancer and emollient used in cosmetics.

Isopropyl palmitate is the ester of isopropyl alcohol and palmitic acid. It is an emollient, moisturizer, thickening agent, and anti-static agent.

Isopropyl Palmitate is the standard polar emollient for cosmetics, toiletries and topical medication use. It can also be used a solvent for flavors and fragrances.

Isopropyl Palmitate is an ester of palmitic acid and Isopropyl alcohol. 
Palmitic acid is naturally found in plants and animals. 
It has a longer carbon-hydrogen-oxygen chain in its structure, which makes it much more lipophilic, thus it can penetrate into the skin easily. 
It is a colorless and odorless liquid.

It is a non-polar oily liquid. 
This physical property makes it an anti-static. 
An anti-static agent’s function is crucial in any formulation, since static charge may bring instability in any preparation and can break the emulsion into two different phases oil and water. 
The anti-static agent can neutralize this charge and improves stability. 
Isopropyl Palmitate is also a moisturizing and skin conditioning agent. 
So, it forms a film on the surface of skin or hair which is water-resistant and doesn’t allow moisture to escape. 
Thus, it saves moisture for skin. Which is helpful in case of dry skin. 
Also, it has a longer chain in its structure, which gives it more affinity to skin. 
Isopropyl Palmitate functions as a lubricant; it helps with the flow of dry ingredients. 
Isopropyl Palmitate also imparts soft and smooth appearance to the skin. 
Isopropyl Palmitate acts as a binder for a dry powder mixture. It can also be used as an adhesive to compress tablets and cakes. 
Isopropyl Palmitate is found in moisturizer, conditioner, lipstick, concealer, eye shadow, and antiaging products.

Chemical Function: Emollient

From regional perspective, Europe is estimated to account for the dominating share in global isopropyl palmitate market and is register substantial growth in upcoming year. 
Several growth factor such as increasing demand of cosmetic and personal care products are fueling the demand of isopropyl palmitate market. 
Further, North America witnessed significant share in the global market and growing with a moderate rate.  

Collectively, South Asia and East Asia regions holding one fourth of the global market share in the global isopropyl palmitate. 
As, the gradual globalization of the economy combined with growing fragmentation of groups have served to bring disparate areas of globe in contact with one another in a very tangible way. 
With increasing GDP and quadrupled consumption, Asia Pacific’s urban population is expected to increase rapidly, which in turn, will result in more consumption and growth in key end markets over the next decade with an increased need for better products and services.
Furthermore, Middle East and Africa are witnessed to have relatively moderate growth in global isopropyl palmitate market.

The market growth is primarily driven by growing demand from the cosmetic industry. 
Isopropyl palmitate is a palm oil-based emollient, derived from coconut oil. 
It is primarily used as a thickening agent in skincare products like moisturizers, sunscreens, and conditioners. 
It also acts as a lubricant on the skin’s surface, giving it a smoother appearance and transforming the texture into one that is ultra-soft. 
Isopropyl palmitate has various cosmetics applications which include antistatic agents, binding agents, emollients, perfuming agents and skin conditioning

Isopropyl Palmitate is a fast spreading emollient suitable for all cosmetic applications.

Emollients are the ingredients that are responsible for the smooth feel of the skin that is felt after a moisturizer has been applied.

Emollients are essential ingredients in our cosmetics for daily use:

Shielding the skin by providing a protective layer
Keeping the skin moisturized
Solubilizing lipophilic active ingredients
Solubilizing crystalline UV filters
Dispersing pigments
Acting as solubilizing agent in make-up removers
They play an important role in determining the right skin feel of a cosmetic product and influencing the consumers’ acceptance of the product. Each emollient has its own skin sensory behaviour which can help to deliver a unique skin feel. The faster an emollient spreads, the lighter it usually feels.

Emollients are the substances used in the formulations to provide softness and smoothness to the skin and to adjust the consistency of creams, ointments, and lotions. 
Emollients must be nonirritating, nontoxic, and mild, as they may interfere with several skin reactions that may occur after skin damage, for example, barrier repair. 
Addition of emollients into the semisolid formulation enhances the character of the vehicle and promotes penetration of the active drug through the skin locally or systemically. 
Drug molecules penetrate by passive diffusion through the stratum corneum as it is keratinized tissue and acts as a semipermeable membrane. 
The concentration of drug in the vehicle, water solubility of the drug, and oil–water partition coefficient between stratum corneum and the vehicle decide the rate of drug movement. 
Examples include petrolatum, glycerin, isopropyl palmitate, isopropyl myristate, and mineral oil

Pharmacopoeia Compliance
FDA-IID Listed

Emollients (substances that soften the skin) are a fundamental part of treatment. 
They leave an occlusive layer that seals the surface of the skin and reduces water loss; the addition of humectants (hygroscopic substances) such as urea and glycerol can further enhance water retention. 
Ointments are the most effective emollients, but are greasy and not well accepted by most people. 
Creams are more cosmetically acceptable, but aqueous cream (once widely used) should be avoided, as it weakens the epidermal barrier.
