Introducing our premium-quality Glycol Palmitate, a versatile ingredient renowned for its exceptional properties and wide range of applications in the cosmetic industry. Glycol Palmitate, also known as Ethylene Glycol Monopalmitate, is a high-quality ester derived from the reaction between ethylene glycol and palmitic acid. This unique compound offers excellent emollient and moisturizing capabilities, making it a sought-after ingredient in various skincare, haircare, and cosmetic formulations.

With its elegant texture, non-greasy feel, and excellent spreadability, this ingredient enhances the sensory experience of your formulations, leaving the skin feeling smooth, hydrated, and nourished.

Formulation Tips:

Emollient Creams and Lotions: Incorporate Glycol Palmitate into your emollient creams and lotions to enhance their texture and moisturizing properties. Combine it with other emollients, such as fatty alcohols or natural oils, to achieve a luxurious and velvety skin feel. Begin by melting the desired amount of Glycol Palmitate in the oil phase of your formulation, ensuring it is thoroughly dispersed before continuing with the emulsion process.

Lip Balms and Lipsticks: Create lip care products with a rich and silky texture by adding Glycol Palmitate to your lip balm and lipstick formulations. Its emollient properties help to condition and protect the delicate lip skin. Blend Glycol Palmitate with waxes, oils, and pigments while maintaining the desired melting point. Carefully incorporate it into the molten mixture, ensuring even distribution for a consistent and luscious lip product.

Hair Conditioners and Styling Products: Incorporate Glycol Palmitate into hair conditioners and styling products to improve their detangling, smoothing, and frizz-control capabilities. Add it to the oil or water phase of your formulation, depending on the product’s overall composition. Ensure thorough mixing to disperse the Glycol Palmitate evenly, resulting in enhanced manageability and a luxurious feel.

Sunscreens and BB Creams: Enhance the spreadability and skin-feel of your sunscreens and BB creams by including Glycol Palmitate in their formulation. It aids in the dispersion of UV filters and pigments, leading to improved coverage and an even application. Incorporate Glycol Palmitate into the oil phase of your formula, ensuring proper emulsification for a smooth and comfortable finish.

Anti-aging and Moisturizing Products: Utilize the moisturizing properties of Glycol Palmitate in your anti-aging creams and moisturizers to help improve skin hydration and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Combine it with other active ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid or peptides, for enhanced skincare benefits. Incorporate Glycol Palmitate into the oil phase of your formulation, ensuring compatibility with other ingredients.

Experience the remarkable benefits of our high-quality Glycol Palmitate in your cosmetic formulations and unlock the potential for superior skincare and haircare products. Its exceptional emollient properties and versatility make it a valuable ingredient for achieving luxurious textures, enhanced moisturization, and an indulgent sensory experience.

Used in conjunction with a primary emulsifier such as Olivem 1000, Natragem EW, or Montanov 68 Glycol Palmitate (acting as a co-emulsifier) will help to stabilise the emulsion.

Rather than increasing the amount of the primary emulsifier to thicken the finished product (as many formulators are inclined to do) add Glycol Palmitate and / or Cetyl Alcohol to thicken the emulsion. Employing fatty alcohols or thickening esters to an emulsion rather than increasing the amount of the primary emulsifier can help reduce the soaping (whitening) effect that can occur when creams are applied and rubbed into the skin

  1. Peter

    Never used this ingredient before but, following a recommendation from The Formulary I added it to my cream formulation. I reduced my emulsifier by 1% and added 1.5% % Lanol P. The new cream feels nicer on the skin and absorbs better.
