Cetearyl alcohol used in the personal care products are found in the animals and plants such as coconut and palm oil as well as they can also be made in a laboratory. Cetearyl alcohol aids in preventing products from separating into oil and liquid, in addition to this it also makes the product thicker or increases the product’s ability to foam. Hence, the natural orientation of Cetearyl alcohol will promote its adoption in the fatty alcohol industry. Besides, Cetearyl alcohol is also used for the medication purpose to treat or prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin, and minor skin irritations including diaper rash, skin burns from radiation therapy. Cetearyl alcohol softens and moisturizes the skin while decreasing the itching and flaking.
