Cetyl Alcohol

I’m a fatty, plant-derived alcohol: I’m a non-greasy thickener that helps products stay stable. I also help lock moisture into your skin and hair.

Technical Term
Cetyl 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 helping bind moisture to hair & skin.

How I'm made

I’m derived from naturally awesome stuff like coconut palm trees, corn, sugar beets, or soy.

How I work

I’m safe for your skin and hair: contrary to what my name might make you think, I don’t dry you out. I’m actually very helpful: I help make creams, moisturisers, and hair products have stable formulas, which means I make them creamy, rich, and spreadable. As an emollient, I help form an oily layer that locks in moisture for skin and hair.
