    Cetyl myristoleate is an ester comprised of the 16-carbon atom alcohol, cetyl alcohol, and the 14-carbon monounsaturated fatty acid cis-9 tetradecenoic acid, or myristoleic acid. There is no credible support for claims that cetyl myristoleate is effective in arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and immune disorders, from PDRHealth

    It seems to have some popularity with people suffering from arthritis, fibro etc. it is also known as CMO there is No actual evidence it is effective (it is claimed to lubricate the joints) it is also relatively expensive to use. You can order it online etc. and it is made with Mice! Yuk.
