Myristyl palmitate is a wax ester of palmitic acid used in the production of personal care products and pharmaceuticals. Palmitic acid is a saturated fatty acid that naturally occurs in animals, plants, and microorganisms and acts as an excellent emollient. Myristyl palmitate is a white to yellowish colored solid, which has a high melting point and is insoluble in water. It is also known as palmitic acid myristyl ester, tetradecyl hexadecanoate, and hexadecanoic acid tetradecyl ester. Myristyl palmitate is used as a wetting agent and penetrate in the cosmetics industry. In personal care products, myristyl palmitate is used in SoL products, hair damaging agents, sun-screening agents, etc. It is also used as a cleansing agent in detergents or surfactants.
