Ashland makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Ceraphyl™ 368M ester is used to impart richness on the skin and a mild feel during rubout. It is ideal for many personal care products ranging from sun care lines to color cosmetics. As a replacement for mineral oil, this product is also often paired with other emollients to achieve multiple benefits. It delivers a more lavish feel than isopropyl myristate.

For sun care products, Ceraphyl 368M ester provides stability in formulations because it maintains the absorbance curve of active sunscreen ingredients. Non-occlusive, it can be used to impart a silky feel in various creams, lotions and other moisturizing products. In color cosmetics, Ceraphyl 368M ester is an effective binder for pressed powders.
