Emulsifiers are used in a number of products for their ability to mix water and oil to create a multipurpose single application. They can be found in lotions and creams and are one of our most requested ingredients for those making their own skin care products. The ability of an emulsifier to combine waters and oils gives a final product the ability to both cleanse and condition the skin at the same time.
Cetyl Alcohol is often used as an emulsifier as it increases viscosity and consistency and attracts moisture. These properties give it a number of applications. Available from Akoma as white powder flakes, Cetyl Alcohol is an inexpensive way to create skin products that are easy to apply and remove, the end result is skin that is renewed, refreshed and protected from the elements.
