Consumers want an enjoyable skinfeel coupled with environmental responsibility in all their personal care products. Cetiol® CC creates a pleasantly dry and velvety sensation in applications as diverse as skincare products, sunscreens, antiperspirants or hair care products. Derived 70% from natural, renewable feedstocks, the fast-spreading emollient is an excellent alternative to silicones. It offers good solubility for crystalline UV filters and dispersing performance for pigments as well as excellent perfume and propellant solubility and even good makeup removing efficacy. Cetiol® CC is approved by COSMOS, ECOCERT, BDIH and NPA, making it ideal for people wishing to pamper themselves.
