Cetyl Alcohol

Cetyl Alcohol is a skin-friendly fatty alcohol with moisturizing, conditioning, and softening properties. It helps homogenize and stabalize oil and water components that naturally separate. It is a soothing emollient, a thickener, and a carrier for other ingredients in a formula. It provides a smooth texture, easy glide on the skin, and helps the skin retain moisture.
