What is Dicaprylyl Ether?

Dicaprylyl ether is a medium-chain ether derived from caprylic acid and capric acid. It's a clear, colorless liquid with emollient properties, meaning it helps soften and moisturize the skin. It provides hydration and smoothness; acting as an emollient agent, it helps improve texture and prevent moisture loss.


It's easily absorbed and doesn't leave a greasy feeling. Its main active component is medium-chain fatty acids, specifically caprylic acid and capric acid.
