Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid Copolymer

Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid Copolymer is a naturally derived, soft and cushiony polymer often combined with diheptyl succinate to form a natural texture and skin-feel enhancing alternative to silicones.

The viscosity and feel varies based on the ratio of diheptyl succinate to polymer. The greater the amount of diheptyl succinate, the lighter and dryer the skin feel—closer to cyclomethicone. The greater the amount of Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid Copolymer, the more cushiony and protective the skin feel—up to 350cst dimethicone.
