Behenyl Alcohol

Behenyl Alcohol

INCI: Behenyl Alcohol

It’s a saturated fatty alcohol – not to be confused with drying alcohols like ethanol, isopropyl alcohol or alcohol denat. It is used to increase the viscosity in formulations and as an emulsifier, allowing water-based ingredients and oil-based ingredients to mix and stay together.
