INCI: Magnesium Myristate
Magnesium Myristate is the salt of magnesium and myristic acid (a fatty acid found naturally in palm and coconut oil). The texture of Magnesium Myristate is surprisingly creamy, as it has a wonderful, rich gliding quality when rubbed between the fingers. Magnesium Myristate adds both velvety and adhesion to our color cosmetics - more so than magnesium stearate, making it ideal for eyeliner, makeup and also blush. It can also be used as a binder when pressing powders. Magnesium Myristate is also a beneficial alternative to talcum powder for application on baby skin.
Mix it with the other powders in powder cosmetics. In cream cosmetics, it can be stirred into the oil Phase.
Magnesium Myristate is only available as a refined product.
