PEG-100 stearate is commonly used in skincare products like creams, lotions and cleansers to improve texture and stability and blend oil and water-based ingredients. It can create a smooth and creamy texture in lotions, creams and other cosmetic products. It can also be used in makeup products including foundations and BB creams to improve their texture and spreadability on skin.
PEG-100 stearate is a synthetic compound created through a chemical process in laboratories with ethoxylating stearic acid, a saturated fatty acid found in various fats and oils. It's not derived from natural sources like plants or animals.
PEG-100 stearate is generally well-tolerated on skin, but some may experience mild irritation during use.
