Ethylene Glycol Mono Stearate (E.G.M.S.), also known as glycol monostearate or glycol stearate, is an organic compound derived from vegetables. It is extensively used in many skin, hair, and personal care products as it is a stable ingredient. EGMS is insoluble in water, but soluble in alcohol, ether and chloroform, and has a high melting point.

This pale yellow, waxy and flaky compound is beneficial for the skin and hair as it enhances the texture and appearance of the formulation in numerous products.
It is widely used to impart a pearlised look to the product which is why it is a popular ingredient in many facial cleansers, hand washes, shower gels, shampoos, and toothpaste. It also adds opacity and viscosity to formulations and is generally used in surfactant-based systems which help to stabilise the formula.
