Crodacol™ CS50

Croda Inc. makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Crodacol™ CS50 is a cetearyl alcohol that is a very efficient thickener and co-emulsifier which imparts a dry emollient feel to the skin. It is effective in either water-in-oil or oil-in-water systems. This grade is able to produce emulsions without the graininess often associated with C16-18 blends. Unlike many of these other alcohols, Crodacol™ CS50 also has excellent color and a low odor—one of the reasons the ingredient is highly recommended for conditioners.

Because fatty alcohols are substantive in the cationic environment of conditioners and, thus, are retained on the hair, their odor becomes an important factor. Since Crodacol™ CS50 has such a low odor, the potential for a problem of this sort to develop is virtually eliminated.

Croda considers the RSPO’s Mass Balance system to be an important progressive step in supporting the palm oil physical supply chain and creating momentum towards segregated sustainable Palm Oil and Palm Kernel Oil material. To that end, sampling will be of the sustainable palm variant, SP Crodacol™ CS50.
