Cetyl Alcohol is a fatty alcohol and is used as a thickener, emulsion stabiliser and opacifier. It adds body and viscosity to creams and lotions, improving the texture and feel with its characteristic velvety finish. 

It imparts emollient properties to formulations; this is due to its absorption and retention in the epidermis where it lubricates and softens the skin. It is a versatile ingredient that can be used in all types of products.

Amazing ingredient!

I used it for my body butter. Cetyl Alcohol makes my body butter better in texture. It helps to make it less greasy on the skin!
