INCI: Octyldodecyl Stearoyl StearateProduct Categories: Binder, Ester
Dermol 20-SS is a diester that is derived from natural hydrogenated castor oil where the carboxyl group is reacted with long branched chain alcohol. While the free hydroxyl group is reacted with stearic acid, this results in a long branched chain saturated liquid diester. However, unlike many other long chain esters, Dermol 20-SS maintains its liquidity due to the branching. It exhibits substantive emollience and luxurious softness and silkiness on the skin. It also exerts excellent slip and lubricity without excessive luster and sheen.
This material is soluble in most hydrophobic solvents such as silicones, esters, mineral oil, vegetable oils, alcohols, aliphatic, aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons. It is dispersible in glyceryols, diols and polyols and insoluble in water.
