Cocoestolide (Personal Care)



CocoEstolide™ is an exciting new plant-based emollient with enhanced stability properties, exceptional moisturization characteristics and a light, satiny feel.

This patented ester is synthesized from a mixture of coconut and natural seed oils.  When used in skincare, haircare and decorative applications, CocoEstolide™ imparts a luxurious feel, absorbs quickly and provides superior functionality as an emollient.
