Isopropyl myristate

Isopropyl myristate is a low density oil with a viscosity comparable to water. This means, that when a lotion or body oil is based on isopropyl myristate it will feel very light on the skin. Isopropyl myristate is largely used as a skin softener in various products but can be used in makeup removers to help gently lift makeup and surface dirt. Finally, it is used as diluent for fragrance oils.
