PPG-3 Benzyl Ether Myristate

Composition:

PPG-3 Benzyl Ether Myristate

Over the last decade, silicones and silicone derivatives have literally infiltrated the personal care market. Dimethicones and cyclomethicones have moved from antiperspirants into liquid makeup, sunscreens, and lipsticks at significant use levels. In hair care, silicones have become the benchmarks for promising shiny silky hair. Despite this, silicones have been under scrutiny recently due to health/safety issues raised by Industry regulatory bodies. PPG-3 Benzyl Ether Myristate is a great alternative to silicones.PPG-3 Benzyl Ether Myristate is a new emollient ester that offers many of the desirable attributes of silicone, especially in terms of shine and feel characteristics, plus a number of other benefits dimethicone and cyclomethicone do not provide.
