Cetyl alcohol is a fatty vegetable alcohol (palm oil) used as an emulsion stabilizer and opacifier, adding body and viscosity to creams and lotions and improving texture and feel with its characteristic velvety texture.
Cetyl alcohol enters a small percentage along with our main emulsifier and gives a greaser texture to our cream.
Ideal for products for dry and dehydrated skin.
It delivers softening properties to formulations due to its absorption and retention in the skin where it lubricates and softens the skin. Useful in creams, lotions and scrub, can also be used to increase the melting point and improve the texture of the butter.
