Cetyl alcohol, also known as 1-hexademayol and palmityl alcohol, is a popular ingredient used in a range of personal care products and cosmetics. It is derived from vegetable oils and is gentle on the skin.

In personal care products like skin lotions and creams, this fatty alcohol acts as a thickening agent and emulsifier, helping the ingredients in the product from separating. In cosmetics, it helps the makeup adhere to the skin for a longer period of time. This is because it melts at a much higher temperature than the human body's. Cetyl alcohol also acts as a binding agent, enabling smoother application. it works well with most other emulsifiers.
