Schercemol™ ICS ester

INCI Name: Isocetyl Stearate

Schercemol™ ICS ester provides a unique combination of properties due to its high molecular weight, saturated structure, and low freeze point. It is comparable to many naturally occurring waxes. Schercemol ICS ester is colorless and odorless, and therefore ideal for non-fragranced formulations. It is also recommended for light textured day creams, makeup, and non-greasy hand and body lotions. It can also be used to improve payoff in stick applications.
