Cetearyl Olivate is the ester of cetearyl alcohol and the fatty acids derived from olive oil. It comes in the form of an oily wax. It is a nonionic emulsifier that helps blend ingredients together in cosmetic solutions, usually ones with moisturizing properties. It helps soften the skin & hair, and gives products a smooth and luxurious feel. It's most often used in conjunction with sorbitan olivate in several personal care products such as facial moisturizer, conditioner, anti-aging treatment, sunscreen, shaving cream, eye cream, lip gloss, cleanser, skin fader, scar treatment and body firming lotion.
Fun Fact:
Cetearyl Olivate comes to the formula coupled with Sorbitan Olivate as the two together form the well-known, natural emulsifier trade named Olivem 1000, which has moisturizing, barrier-repairing and soothing properties.
