So, what is cetyl lactate?

Cetyl lactate is a natural wax ester derived from cetyl alcohol and lactic acid. It is commonly used in cosmetic formulations as an emollient and moisturizer due to its ability to soften and smooth the skin's texture. Cetyl lactate helps to improve the texture and stability of creams and lotions, making them easier to apply and enhancing their overall effectiveness. Additionally, it possesses antioxidant properties that can help to protect the skin from environmental stressors. This versatile ingredient is gentle and non-irritating, making it suitable for use in a wide range of skincare products.
