Known for the stable consistency it lends to lotions, Cetyl Alcohol is made up primarily of fatty acids from palm oil. Cetyl Alcohol is an emulsifier as well as a moisturizer, viscosity stabilizer and foam enhancer. While the name "alcohol" suggests it is a liquid, it is actually white, odourless flakes or pellets which are not soluble in cold water, and very minimally soluble is hot water and alcohol.
Our Cetyl Alcohol is manufactured by VVF India Limited, a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm.
Use in concentrations of between 3% and 10% for creams, lotions and shampoo.
INCI: Cetyl Alcohol
