INGREDIENT GLOSSARY • Thickener
AT A GLANCE
A skin-loving emollient and thickener that helps keep lotions and creams stable.
Type of Ingredient
Why we use it
Skincare products like lotions and creams contain both water-based and oil-based ingredients. Cetyl alcohol helps stabilize those mixtures and keep those ingredients from separating. It also thickens the texture and helps give it a soft, non-greasy feel on the skin.
