Cetearyl Alcohol

Alcohol… As overzealous people we tend to ban it from our products for hair. Therefore, there are good and bad alcohol.

Cetearyl Alcohol

  • To ban (or at least check quantities): ethyl alcohol, ethanol; isopropyl alcohol or isopropanol. These alcohols are said to dry out hair. These short chain alcohols (they have very few carbon atoms) are thus liquid, can act as solvants and solve our natural protective oil.
  • In contrast, fatty alcohols (long chain alcohols) can be good to your hair as for your body. Thus, they act as moisturizers. Among them one can find ceterayl alcohol, stearyl alcohol. So, if you find some of these alcohols in your haircare, do not panic anymore, it’s all good for you.
