It plays a vital role in enhancing the texture, stability, and overall performance of skincare formulations.

  • Thickening agent: The alcohol provides viscosity and thickness to skincare products, giving them a rich and creamy consistency. It helps improve the spreadability and application of creams and lotions.
  • Enhanced product stability: Cetostearyl alcohol contributes to the stability and shelf life of skincare formulations by preventing ingredient separation and maintaining the integrity of the product.
  • Skin conditioning: The alcohol helps improve the overall texture and feel of the skin. It can smooth rough or dry areas, leaving the skin soft, supple, and nourished.
