Overview

Hydrogenated polydecene is a clear, colorless, highly viscous liquid that commonly serves as an emollient in skincare products. This rich emollient is on the heavier side but provides a smooth sensorial profile upon application.

In addition to functioning as an emollient, hydrogenated polydecene also works as a solvent. Due to its nonpolar nature, which means it is highly hydrophobic, this ingredient is great for dissolving other nonpolar ingredients.

This ingredient is compatible with many oils and even with other silicones, and this allows for incorporation of these ingredients that may not otherwise be compatible with each other.
