Coco Caprylate/Caprate

Coco Caprylate and Coco Caprate are esters from alcohols derived from coconut with caprylic and capric acids. It's a naturally-derived, biodegradable cosmetic ingredient certified by Ecocert and other green organizations as an efficient replacement of cyclic silicones in skincare formulations.

Coco Caprylate spreads quickly and has a pleasant, dry skin feel—like cyclomethicones. In contrast to other silicone alternatives, it also has good skin compatibility and easier handling in production; therefore, it is ideal for facial, body, sun, and hair care products, as well as decorative cosmetics.

A green sensorial alternative to cyclomethicones, this light emollient is derived from natural feedstocks and approved by:

  • Ecocert
  • BDIH.
