Polyglyceryl-6 caprylate/caprate is an ester-combination, which consists of a mix of 6 glycerine molecules and caprylic and caprinic acid (C8-10 fatty acid).
The substance is added to cosmetic products as an emulsifier – i.e. it enables the mix of oily and watery ingredients and to provide the product with a uniform surface texture. Glycerine equally has softening properties.
There is no knowledge of studies, which indicate substance problems relative to allergies (2014).
The substance is allowed in products, which have been certified by Asthma-Allergy Denmark.
