Also identified as:

  • Caprylate/Caprate


Caprylate/Caprate is primarily used in cosmetics as an emollient and emulsifier for formulations.  It is an ester of coconut fatty alcohol, caprylic acid and capric acid.  It improves the glide of many varieties of products during application and leaves a non-greasy, soft after touch.

Although little information is available about this ester, the components present in this ingredient (coconut alcohol, caprylic acid and capric acid) are widely accepted as safe, non-toxic ingredients in hair and skin care products.
