Product Introduction:

Cetearyl Alcohol, chemical formula C34H72O2, is white solid crystals, granules or wax blocks, with fragrance. It has a melting point of 48-50°C and a boiling point of 344°C. Insoluble in water, soluble in ethanol, ether, chloroform and mineral oil. Sulfonation reaction with concentrated sulfuric acid, no chemical effect in contact with strong alkali. It has the functions of inhibiting shine, reducing wax viscosity, and stabilizing cosmetic emulsions.

Since Cetearyl Alcohol is a linear saturated fatty alcohol with 16 carbon atoms, stearyl alcohol is a linear saturated fatty alcohol with 18 carbon atoms, also known as cetyl stearyl alcohol.

Theoretically, it can be used in any product applied to the skin or hair, usually in creams, lotions, moisturizers and shampoos. When used in cosmetics, Cetearyl Alcohol acts as an emulsifier and stabilizer to prevent product separation.

Basic physical and chemical properties of Cetearyl Alcohol:

  • Cetearyl Alcohol is in the form of white solid crystals, granules or wax blocks. Scented. Its relative density is d4500.8176, refractive index is nD391.4283, melting point is 48-50°C, and boiling point is 344°C. Insoluble in water, soluble in ethanol, ether, chloroform and mineral oil.
  • Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol undergoes sulfonation reaction with concentrated sulfuric acid, and has no chemical effect when it meets strong alkali. It has the functions of inhibiting shine, reducing wax viscosity, and stabilizing cosmetic emulsions.
  • Most of the cetearyl alcohol used today is produced from coconut oil and palm oil.

The main application of cetearyl alcohol:

  • Cetyl Stearyl Alcohol is widely used in cosmetics and can be used as a co-emulsifier, oil thickener, lubricant, etc.

  • Many emulsified waxes are mixed with cetearyl alcohol to use emulsification and thickening to make the product more stable.

  • When you want to make low-oily, high-viscosity products, it is inappropriate to blindly increase the emulsification ratio. Too much emulsifier is not beneficial to the skin but will cause discomfort. At this time, the viscosity and hardness of the product can be increased by increasing the proportion of cetyl stearyl alcohol. Compared with waxes such as beeswax, cetearyl alcohol is relatively refreshing and does not feel sticky when applied to the skin. 

  • In medicine, it can be directly used as W/O emulsifier paste, ointment base, etc. It can stabilize the emulsion and has a covalent effect, reducing the amount of surfactant needed to form a stable emulsion.

  • Cetearyl alcohol has a more obvious “post-concentration” phenomenon. In other words, it should be noted that consistency will increase after a period of deployment after production is complete. The duration here is not a few hours, but a few days to dozens of days.

  • In addition, cetyl stearyl alcohol cannot be used as a thickening agent to make a transparent oil gel. After adding grease, the light transmittance will definitely decrease, forming an ointment-like texture. But if you prepare an ointment containing beeswax, it will soften the skin.
