Is isopropyl myristate intended as a coemulsifier?

  • I don’t think that link has the correct LOI. It shows the Gliss conditioner, but looks like it has listed a shampoo’s ingredients (and IPM is not on the list).

    @gunther for IPM i think that it is used for better solublisation of dimethicone also in general IPM can used to reduce the greasy effect of product.
