Ashland makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Ceraphyl™ 28 ester, a multipurpose emollient, is a performance-enhancing ester that can be used in a wide variety of personal care products. It enhances slip and imparts sheen and silkiness to hair and skin. Acting as a pigment dispersant, detackifier and emollient, it provides good payoff and improved aesthetics because it is non-oily, non-drying and non-greasy. This highly versatile emollient reduces tackiness and greasiness that other ingredients may cause in the formulation and provides a non-oily lubricity in hydro-alcoholic products.
