Cetyl alcohol is used as a nonionic surfactant and emulsifying agent in your soaps and skincare formulas. When used in soap making, cetyl alcohol extends the longevity of your lather, making it a long-lasting lather on each use.
When you use cetyl alcohol in your skincare formulas, like body lotions or body butters, it works as an emulsifier, helping to keep your oils and water blended, and as a moisturizer booting the emolliency of your finished product.
Cetyl Alcohol is a single compound, consisting mostly of C16 Palmitic Fatty Acid. Palmitic Acid has high moisturizing properties when applied to the skin by helping to lock in moisture. Fatty Acids are critical when it comes to skincare products, both for moisture factors and for helping to create healthy skin. The difference between Cetyl Alcohol and Ceteryl Alcohol is that Cetyl is a single compound whereas Ceteryl is a blend of cetyl and C18 Stearyl compounds. Ceteryl Alcohol is traditionally used as a stabilizer, foam booster for foaming washes/gels, and as an opacifier. Cetyl can also be used as an opacifier, but is primarily used as an emollient due to the high levels of Palmitic Acid.
Cetyl alcohol is soluble in oils or alcohol, not in water. Our Cetyl Alcohol is made from non-GMO, Halal and Kosher certified palm oil.
