Cetyl Alcohol


Cetyl alcohol is a fatty alcohol that is naturally derived from animals and plants and is used to formulate conditioners. It will improve product texture, act as a lubricant, and facilitate moisture retention.  It benefits the hair by allowing the product to spread evenly throughout the hair, softens the hair, and seals in moisture which is great for the hair and the scalp.
