Oil-soluble pellets/ flakes. Cetearyl Alcohol is actually a blend of cetyl and stearyl alcohol which are both naturally derived from mixed vegetable sources.


Emulsion stabiliser, structurising agent,  emollient (for soft, melting texture if used at correct levels - too much will make the product very waxy). Oil-soluble - heat and melt in the oil phase.

Melting Point:  


Use Levels: 

0.2-1.5% typically.  In an emulsion, Cetearyl alcohol is generally used at around 0.5% to help improve the structure and stability of the oil phase while giving a good skin feel.  It can also be used up to 15% in a hair conditioner formula to give slip and increase viscosity.


This all-natural ingredient helps to stabilise your product and can also improve the skin's feel and texture. It has a low odour and colour which makes it suitable for a wide range of applications. It works well with non-ionic, anionic and cationic primary emulsifiers to build a strong and cosmetically appealing emulsion.
