Laurocapram is used as the penetration enhancer in cosmetic preparations and personal-care products. Laurocapram is combined as an excipient not an active ingredient. Excipients are added to ensure that the shelf-life of the active ingredients can be long enough to be active until internal use. Excipients are combined also to support the active ingredients, so that the latter can be easily administered or absorbed in the body.
