Description
Curator's Comment:: Description was created based on several sources, including http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17557742 and http://www.eurotradingonline.it/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Ecocert-BASF-Products-list-EMC-BCS-012014-final.pdf

Octyldodecanol is a long chain fatty alcohol. It is a medium spreading emollient which is due to its chemical structure hydrolysis stable and therefore beneficially suitable for all formulations where a wide pH range is needed e.g. deo/antiperspirant and hair remover formulations. It is an emulsifier and opacifying agent, used primarily as a thickener in moisturizers because of its lubricating and emollient properties in the formulation of skin care products. Octyldodecanol is approved by ECOCERT for Natural and Organic Cosmetics.
