Sensoft (propylheptyl caprilate)

I'm looking to replace one of the emollients with Sensoft. But which? Maybe the Myritol (capric/caprylic triglycerides)? Any comments on Sensoft T-175 appreciated.

stearic acid - 2
cetyl alc - 2
Myritol 318 - 3
Vit E - 0.5
chia oil - 2

    BASF has a nice table called "choosing the right emollient" - where you can compare different properties, (don't know if the link work @ your location though.)

    "You do not have access to the Europe (EMEA) region."
    I can buy it, but I can't find out about it.

    The first has the same problem, the second is for Cetiol CC not Sensoft. I did find some information from Dewolf Chemical. I see it has a saponification number of around 195, I suppose it would be possible to make a (very expensive) soap from it! Thanks anyway.

    Cetiol Sensoft is a fast spreading emollient (spreading value 1900mm2/10min) with medium polarity and a viscosity of 5mPas @20oC.

    We used this emollient a number of years ago when it was made by Cognis but were forced to change as we were unable to meet the high minimum order quantities imposed by BASF. We changed to caprylic/capric triglycerides with only slight difference in the feel of our lotion. You could probably replace the Myritol 318 with Sensoft with not too many issues. Just check out the minimum order requirements with your distributor.

    Thanks for that, Ozgirl. Minimums are no problem for me with BASF because Conjunto Lar, a factor in Mexico City, can supply me. I just bought a kilo of it to try, it was around US$27.50 per kilo, rather more expensive than capric/caprylic triglycerides, but it's for our most expensive product to date.
