Our Glyceryl Dibehanate is a palm-free, plant-derived complex mixture of glycerine and behenic acid - a naturally occuring fatty acid. It is a skin conditioning agent and emollient. The glyceryl esters act as a lubricant on the skin's surface.
A safe ingredient often used in the food, pharmaceutical and oral care industries, it increases the viscosity of oils to create a gel-ointment. By adding it to the COMFORT Rescue balm, it allows us to use more nourishing plant oils and ensures that the balm is more heat stable.
