Cetyl Alcohol NF is a, 95% pure and natural, fatty alcohol from Coconut Oil. When Cetyl Alcohol is added to natural cosmetic preparations, it functions as an agent that helps homogenize components that naturally separate (emulsifier), as a soothing lubricant (emollient), as a thickener, as an opacifier, and as a carrier for other ingredients in a formula. These stabilizing properties ensure that the oils and water remain combined, thus promoting an ideal, smooth texture that ultimately gives the final product an easy glide on the skin or hair.

Cetyl Alcohol NF

Cetyl Alcohol NF is a, 95% pure and natural, fatty alcohol from Coconut Oil. The fatty alcohols are not at all similar to what you might think of when you think of alcohol, from petro or even the natural distilled grains, which would be drying to the skin. Cetyl Alcohol NF, and other Fatty Alcohols, in contrast, are very moisturizing to the skin where they help to lock in the skin’s natural moisture levels, and impart a smooth, soft, feel to both the product and the skin.

Cetyl Alcohol NF, natural, can be usefully employed in your emulsions, and anhydrous formulas to increase viscosity (thicken), and to give the product a cushioned body. Cetyl Alcohol NF is one of the most widely used of the natural fatty alcohols, often employed as the sole conditioning agent in natural creme rinse or natural hair conditioners, as it adequately moisturizes and improves wet / dry comb out. A natural, and easy to use, rheology modifier that will improve the texture of all formulas that contain an oil phase, where Cetyl Alcohol NF delivers a ‘conditioned’ feel to the skin. Cetyl Alcohol NF is also a good choice when you’re looking for a natural thickener, where it also provide a rich, smooth, emulsion.

Cetyl Alcohol NF is also, commonly, used as a natural thickener, which improves the stability of the emulsion to function, as a co-emulsifier, and it is compatible with almost all common cosmetic ingredients. When Cetyl Alcohol NF is used as the thickener in your formulation, as opposed to other natural thickener choices, it offers more ease of use because it won’t impact the system pH, or add thixotropic behavior. A great choice when you optimize your formulas to strip out incidental ingredients for greener formulations. As a thickener Cetyl Alcohol NF offers simplicity.
