Cetyl Alcohol is a fatty alcohol used as an emulsion stabiliser and opacifier. It helps to soften the skin. A great addition to your lotions, creams and scrubs!
It helps to add an emollient feel (smoothness and glide) to lotions and creams.
Cetyl Alcohol can also be used as the emollient instead of oil to create an “oil free” moisturiser.
