Isopropyl myristate (IPM) is a widely used ingredient in various industries due to its unique properties. It is a synthetic compound formed by the esterification of isopropyl alcohol and myristic acid. IPM is known for its excellent solvency, low viscosity, and non-greasy feel, which makes it suitable for many applications. Some of the common uses of isopropyl myristate include:

  1. Cosmetic and Personal Care Products: IPM is a popular ingredient in cosmetics and personal care products due to its ability to act as an emollient, providing a smooth and silky texture. It is commonly found in lotions, creams, sunscreens, hair conditioners, and makeup products.

  2. Pharmaceuticals: In the pharmaceutical industry, isopropyl myristate is used as a carrier and penetration enhancer for topical drug delivery. It helps active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) penetrate the skin more effectively, enhancing the drug's therapeutic effects.

  3. Insect Repellents: IPM is sometimes used in insect repellents to improve the spreadability and effectiveness of the active ingredients. It helps disperse the repellent agents evenly on the skin, making them more efficient at repelling insects.

  4. Lubricants: Due to its low viscosity and non-greasy properties, isopropyl myristate is used as a lubricant in various mechanical and industrial applications.

  5. Adhesives: IPM is used in adhesive formulations to improve the adhesive properties and reduce tackiness.

  6. Paints and Coatings: Isopropyl myristate can be found in paint and coating formulations to improve their spreadability and reduce drying time.

  7. Cleaning Products: IPM is used in some cleaning products due to its ability to dissolve oils and greases effectively.

  8. Food and Flavour Industry: In the food industry, IPM can be used as a flavor carrier and dispersing agent for various food additives.
