Vegetal (Cetearyl Glucoside and Cetearyl Alcohol) is a natural emulsifier cream base which derives from corn. It mimics the lipids on the skin which makes it an excellent moisturiser and its mild nature and 'non-irritant' properties means that it is compatible with all skin types including fragile and sensitive skin.
The product is waxy and mild with a cream colour and a silky smooth texture. While there are various incarnations of this product available our Vegetal is natural and manufactured in an environmentally sustainable fashion without the use of solvents or chemicals. Vegetal creates a particularly stable emulsion of oils and water-based ingredients without the need for additional co-emulsifiers and stabilisers.
INCI Name: Cetearyl Glucoside (and) Cetearyl Alcohol
Suggestions for Use:
It is a standalone emulsifier with the consistency of a cream and can be used without the addition of further thickening agents.
It helps both skin and hair retain moisture and is therefore both an excellent moisturiser and conditioner. Vegetal is often used in hand creams, hydrating cleansers and skin firming lotions.
