I am in love with this ester oil. I live in a hot tropical country, Singapore, and we have very high humidity (averaging 80%) and thus most people cannot tolerate thick creams, oils or sticky texture. Isoamyl laurate gives a very lovely skin feel, smooth and ZERO tackiness even used up to 20% in a facial oil. It creates very lovely skin feel in emulsions. This is one ingredient that is indispensable in my inventory!
