Cetearyl Alcohol

Cetearyl Alcohol is a mixture of cetyl and stearyl alcohols, both of which are fatty alcohols derived from vegetable oils. Despite the term "alcohol," Cetearyl Alcohol is not drying to the skin; on the contrary, it acts as an emollient and emulsifier in many cosmetic products. It helps improve the texture of products, makes them easier to spread and provides a pleasant feeling on the skin.


  1. Hydration: Cetearyl Alcohol helps hydrate the skin by forming a protective layer that retains moisture, keeping the skin soft and supple.
  2. Soothing: It acts as an emollient, meaning it softens and smoothes the skin, making it an ideal ingredient for creams and lotions.
  3. Improved texture: Cetearyl Alcohol stabilizes and thickens cosmetic formulas, helping to create a creamy, luxurious texture in skin care products.


  1. Emulsifying power: Cetearyl Alcohol helps mix oil and water in emulsions, keeping products stable and consistent.
  2. Non-irritating: It is mild and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, as it rarely causes allergic reactions or irritations.
  3. Naturally derived: Often obtained from plant sources such as coconut or palm oil, Cetearyl Alcohol makes a safe and effective choice for natural skin care products.
