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 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
