Propanediol Dicaprylate is a very light ester with a satin feel. Use in creams and lotions to counteract the possible greasy feel when using plant oils and will make your cream feel silkier and smoother when applied to the skin. It is an ideal substitute for silicones if you are looking for a more natural profile for your creams and lotions.
How to Use: Propanediol Dicaprylate is added to the heated oil phase of your cream formulation. Esters are a direct substitute for some or all of the plant oils in a cream formulation. We would recommend replacing half your plant oils with a single ester or blend of esters.
This ester is also a remarkable waterproof makeup remover. Use neat (on a cotton pad) to quickly and effortlessly remove all traces,
