Great Fatty Alcohol Blend

I was a little wary of including fatty alcohols in my formulas but now I'm glad I did. I've noticed increased occlusiveness in the products, so they have more staying power. Very good protective addition to my cold weather skin products.

Not an emulsifier

Just an FYI cetearyl alcohol is not an emulsifier, but a viscosity enhancer. It is included in many self-emulsifiers, but if you try to use it on its own for an o/w or w/o mixture, you will be disappointed. Cetearyl alcohol is made of of two different fatty alcohols, neither of which is an emulsifier. Indeed, cetearyl alcohol has a required hlb and so would be considered an oil-soluble ingredient. Used properly, it is a great ingredient.
