Cetyl Alcohol

Cetyl alcohol is a white, waxy ingredient that comes in pellets similar to beeswax. Cetyl alcohol is often used as a thickener and emulsifier, but it also adds to the moisturising effects of skin treatments.

Not to be confused with more aggressive alcohols like isopropyl alcohol or ethanol, cetyl alcohol is a fatty alcohol that is gentle on the skin. Also, not to be confused with cetearyl alcohol (made from cetyl and stearyl alcohols)!
