Emollients

Emollients are refatting agents added to a cosmetic formulation to provide the skin with the fat it needs. They increase the moisture content of the skin by reducing evaporation, providing a soft, smooth and non-greasy feel to the skin and thus, are often referred as moisturizers. Some emollients used in cosmetics and personal care are glycerin, coconut oil, cocoa butter, mineral oil etc.
