So, what is synthetic spermaceti?

Synthetic spermaceti is a wax-like substance that is chemically synthesized to mimic the properties of natural spermaceti, which is obtained from the head of sperm whales. It is commonly used in the production of cosmetics, such as moisturizers, skin creams, and lotions, due to its emollient and lubricating properties. Synthetic spermaceti is a versatile ingredient that can be used to enhance the texture, consistency, and overall performance of various skincare products. It is also an ethical and sustainable alternative to natural spermaceti, which is obtained through a cruel and unsustainable process.
