They are used in personal care products, mainly skin lotions, hair products, and creams. They help create smoother creams, thicker lotions, and more stable foam products.

What is it used for?

Cetyl alcohol helps prevent creams from separating into oil and liquid. A chemical that helps to keep liquid and oil together is known as an emulsifier. It may also make a product thicker or increase the product’s ability to foam.

How to use

Heat the cetyl alcohol to 60c – 70c within the oil stage of your formulations. Ensure the ceteryl alcohol is fully dissolved into your oil stage (use agitation if required) in order to minimize the risk of graininess in your final formulation.
