Product Description Unlike traditional alcohols that can be drying to both skin and hair, cetyl alcohol is a fatty alcohol. It’s great for skin and hair, and has emollient properties. It also acts as a co-emulsifier to help stabilize emulsions, and a thickening agent. It has a silky feel in products, and adds body without making your product feel heavy or greasy. Cetyl alcohol boosts the conditioning properties of your products, making hair smoother and shinier and helping to lock in moisture.

This product comes in a solid pellet that is melted and then added to oil based or emulsified products. It’s also plant-based and biodegradable.

This is a great ingredient to have in your collection if you’re making skincare or hair care products. It will help take lotions, conditioners, and masks to the next level.
