Lexol® EHP MB is an essentially odorless and colorless emollient. When incorporated in topical cosmetic and toiletry formulations, Lexol® EHP contributes the perceivable benefits of very dry application and smooth after-feel along with very good spreading properties. Lexol® EHP MB was formerly known by the INCI name octyl palmitate. When incorporated into skin care formulations, Lexol® EHP MB is exceptionally effective at reducing the perceived oiliness and greasiness resulting from the presence of heavy and occlusive oils and lipids. Lexol® EHP MB is used in sunscreen preparations because it is known not to shift the wavelength of maximum ultraviolet absorbance (max.) of the active ingredients.
