A skin-loving emollient and thickener that helps keep lotions and creams stable.
Type of Ingredient
Why we use it
Cetearyl alcohol is a fabulous multitasker. It provides richness to lotions and creams and helps lock in moisture. It stabilizes and thickens emulsions, giving them a lovely smooth texture. And when combined with Ceteareth-20, like in Velvet Cleansing Milk, it can emulsify oil and water together to create stable, luxurious creams.
