INCI Name: Glyceryl Caprylate
Glyceryl Caprylate is a monoester of glycerol with caprylic acid and, due to its amphiphilic structure, is mainly used as a co-emulsifier to stabilise O/W emulsions and surfactants. Glyceryl caprylate has a refatting and moisture-regulating effect and supports the effectiveness of acne products through its strong efficacy against bacteria and yeasts. Its excellent antimicrobial activity means that traditional preservatives can be dispensed with. Its effectiveness can be increased by adding lactic acid (0.5 - 1.0%). Glyceryl caprylate convinces through its excellent skin compatibility.
