Bernel Ester DISM
INCI: Diisostearyl MalateProduct Categories: Binder, Ester
Bernel Ester DISM is a fruit ester that is made from natural malic acid, highly branched malic acid and highly branched alcohol. This allows it to exhibit an extremely low freeze point. The presence of the free hydroxyl group on the malic acid facilitates spreadability on the skin and gives it emulsifiability in some polar solvents.
This fruit ester is odorless, tasteless, imparts gloss, sheen and lubricity with a minimum of oiliness. It is recommended as a good binder for pigmented products and is an excellent additive for imparting gloss and sheen in makeup and lip products.
Bernel Ester DISM is soluble in most hydrophobic solvents such as silicones, esters, vegetable and mineral oils, alcohols, aliphatic, aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons and partially soluble in glycols. It is dispersible in triols and polyols and insoluble in water.
