Cetearyl Alcohol 30 70 Blend
Cetearyl Alcohol is a mixture of naturally derived (Coconut and Palm Oils) fatty alcohols consisting predominantly of Cetyl and Stearyl Alcohol. Cetearyl Alcohol offers very efficient viscosity building in your creams, lotions, and other personal care products, including anhydrous formulations such as body polishes or oil blends. This fabulous ingredient can be utilized to modify rheology and viscosity in the creation of both O/W and W/O emulsions. In addition to enhanced viscosity, Cetearyl Alcohol also imparts its own emolliency in the formulation. When compared to Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alchol offers enhanced viscosity building effects as well as improved penetration of other ingredients. Cetearyl Alcohol has long been known as a carrier and penetration enhancer. This widely used fatty alcohol is often employed as the sole conditioning agent in crme rinse or hair conditioner formulations, as it adequately moisturizes and improves wet/dry combout. The 30/70 blend will create a much stiffer emulsion then the Cetearyl Alcohol 70/30 will. If you are looking for a much softer emulsion the check out Cetearyl Alcohol 70/30.
