Product Description:

Myristyl Alcohol is a fatty-alcohol used as an emollient in cosmetics and skin care products (Source). According to research, it is primarily used to inhibit a formula from separating into its oil and liquid components. However, Myristyl Alcohol can be drying, as can most fatty-alcohols.


As with other fatty alcohols, 1-tetradecanol is used as an ingredient in cosmetics such as cold creams for its emollient properties. It is also used as an intermediate in the chemical synthesis of other products such as surfactants.


Myristyl Alcohol is also used for other properties, including as an: Emulsion Stabilizer; Skin-Conditioning Agent; Surfactant; Viscosity Increasing Agent; Foaming Agent; and Fragrance Ingredient. According to The Good Scents Company, Myristyl Alcohol provides a fruity, coconut scent.


Myristyl Alcohol is a kind of straight-chain saturated fatty alcohol. It is often used as an ingredient in cosmetics such as cold creams because of its emollient properties. It can also be used as the intermediate during the manufacturing of some organic compounds like surfactants. Some studies have shown that it can inhibit the endothelial activation and reduce tissue responsiveness to cytokines, having the potential to treat the periodontitis based on studies on rabbits. It is also employed for the fabrication of temperature-regulated drug release system based on phase-change materials.


Myristyl Alcohol is a 14 carbon chain. Cetyl Alcohol has 16 carbons, while Stearyl and Isostearyl Alcohols have 18 carbons. Behenyl Alcohol is the largest fatty alcohol in this group with 22 carbons.
