Home Cosmetic Science Talk Formulating Electric shaver cleaner

    I’m trying to create an electric shaver cleaner that is primarily isopropyl alcohol and most of the rest is distilled water. Isotridecyl Stearate is part of the formula for a smoother shave and lubricating the shaver. Unfortunately I cannot obtain Isotridecyl Stearate in small enough quantities. Does anyone have a suggestion for an alternative ingredient?

    @kawina Many organic esters are miscible with IPA. Isononyl isnonanoate, isopropyl myristate, pentaerythrityl tetraisostearate, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, I could go on and on and on. Try one, check its miscibility in IPA and feel the joy.
