dermosoft® GMCY MB consists of the 100% plant-derived, single ingredient Glyceryl Caprylate. This multifunctional wetting agent provides moisturizing properties and is suitable for many cosmetic applications. It has a co-emulsifying effect in emulsions, solubilization, and pigment dispersions. Besides this multitude of cosmetic functions, the material also shows strong antimicrobial activity.
dermosoft® GMCY MB has an amphiphilic molecule structure and acts as a wetting agent. Its ability to allocate at the surfaces of lipophilic and hydrophilic phases lowers the surface tension between the phases.
