Cetearyl Alcohol

I’m a fatty, plant-derived alcohol, which means I’m a non-greasy thickener that helps products stay stable & moisturising.

Technical Term
Cetearyl Alcohol
Ingredient Class
Supportive ingredient

I help make formulations their best and most effective

I’m a non-toxic emollient: I help thicken and stabilise formulas while feeling smooth on the skin.

How I'm made

I’m derived from plants like coconut, corn, and soy.

How I work

I’m safe for your skin and hair: I don’t dry you out or cause irritation. I’m actually very helpful: I help make creams, moisturisers, and hair products have stable formulas, which means I make them creamy and rich. As an emollient, I help form an oily layer that locks in moisture for skin and hair.Don’t let my name fool you—I’m not like a traditional alcohol: since I’m non-toxic and I help with moisturising, I never leave skin or hair dry.
