Glycol distearate

Glycol distearate is a fat used mostly in hair-care products, but also sometimes in shower gels or lotions. It is known to be moisturizing and can also be used to help the various ingredients in a product stay mixed. However, it is mainly used to change the appearance or texture of products, as it is known to have thickening, opacifying, and pearlescent effects.
