Glyceryl Stearate

Glyceryl stearate is a fatty acid found naturally in the human body. For cosmetic use, it is derived by reacting glycerin with stearic acid. It functions as thickener, co-emulsifier and formulation stabilizer. It is gentle on the skin, gives products a soft and light touch, and offers moisturisation, redness-reducing, and hydration benefits.
