Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate

Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate is an ester of lauric acid and the synthetic polymer polyglycerin-10. It functions as a skin-softening emulsifier to keep the water and oil components mixed together. It helps give products a smooth and easy to dispense texture. This gentle surfactant also serves as a non-irritating yet incredibly efficient cleansing agent.
