Isopropyl Myristate is the ester of isopropyl alcohol and myristic acid. Say wha?? OK so this lovely liquid is a veggie derived non-greasy emollient. It’s light and non-tacky texture helps those heavier oils and butters really dive in your skin, without the greasy feel. When used in heavy concentrations it can be used as a make up remover and will pick up surface dirt. It also helps all that skin loving goodness spread evenly and smooth onto skin and hair.
