A great multi-purpose emollience boosting and thickening fatty alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol is a mixture of cetyl and stearyl fatty alcohols derived from vegetable sources. It is very effective for adjusting the balance of formula viscosity and thickness as well as  being a great gentle emollient that helps to increase moisturization properties in either oil-in water or water-in oil emulsions. It works in a wide variety of skin, hair and body care products, such as creams, lotions, shampoos and conditioners, providing excellent texture and non-gelling viscosity, helping to create luxuriously smooth and indulgent products. When used to thicken shampoos, it might decrease the foaming abilities, but helps to create richer, creamier lathers.
