Our database has 431 products that contain Cetearyl Alcohol.
Cetearyl Alcohol is a fatty alcohol found in animals, plants, or made synthetically in a laboratory. It helps make a product more smooth, thick, helps make foam more stable, and prevents oils from separating from liquids. Fatty alcohols are emollients, meaning they don’t have the same drying effect as regular alcohol.
