Octyl and Cetyl Palmitate

Octyl and Cetyl Palmitate are skin conditioning and emollients produced using palmitic acid, a naturally-occurring fatty acid. It gives cosmetics a smooth, soft appearance. The safety of the Palmitates has been assessed by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel. The CIR Expert Panel evaluated the scientific data and concluded that Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Cetyl Palmitate and Isopropyl Palmitate were safe as cosmetic ingredients. In 2001, the CIR Expert Panel considered available new data on Ethylhexyl, Cetyl and Isopropyl Palmitate and reaffirmed the above conclusion.
