HallStar® IPM-NF is a multifunctional (emollient, solvent, spreading agent, penetrant) synthetically produced ester of vegetal myristic acid and petrochemical isopropyl alcohol that conforms to the requirements of the National Formulary monograph for Isopropyl Myristate.
It is non-occlusive, spreads well and provides an elegant, non-oily skin feel. It may be used as a carrier for cosmetic and pharmaceutical additives, and is also an excellent solubilizer for lanolin. Hence it finds broad application in topically applied cosmetic and pharmaceutical liquid, cream, lotion, powder and spray products.
HallStar® IPM-NF is best stored in sealed containers kept in a cool, dry place. Prolonged storage, at temperatures above 90°F (32°C) should be avoided.
