Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol is a white, waxy solid in flake form. It increases viscosity and is used as a stabiliser in conditioners, creams and lotions. Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol is a vegetable derived blend of cetyl and stearyl fatty alcohol. It is a very effective thickener that helps form extremely stable emulsions in water-in-oil and oil-in-water preparations. Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol is used as a co-emulsifier and imparts moisturising feel and lubricity to the skin. 

Cetyl Sterayl alcohol is suitable for use in creams, ointments, lotions, hair conditioners, body scrubs, butters, balms etc.
