Heptyl Undecylenate

Heptyl undecylenate is an extremely light and dry emollient that is derived from castor oil. This soft-touch oil is a natural alternative to synthetic fluids such as cyclomethicone and mineral oils. It reduces the greasy feeling of heavier oils, helps prevent transepidermal water loss and maintains visibly smooth, pliable skin.
