Olive Glycerides

Olive Glycerides are a multifunctional emollient ingredient coming from non-edible fractions of olive by-products. This soft, velvety, dry touch oil provides unique synergy between di- and tri-glyceride fractions of olive oil. Because triglycerides show an affinity for the skin and diglycerides show an affinity for the formula ingredients, it provides many benefits:

  • Higher skin penetration due to biocompatible triglycerides. This means it helps to carry active and functional ingredients into the skin.
  • Higher formula stability due to polar diglycerides and better resistance to oxidation. It helps products stay safe and stable under stressful conditions.
  • Softer and more velvety touch than most vegetable oils. It’s non-greasy and is perfectly compatible with human skin lipids.
