Inci Name:

Stearyl Alcohol

Chemical Name:

AHCOHOL 1898 is the trade name for Acme-Hardesty’s palm oil-derived stearyl alcohol (also known as stearic alcohol and octadecanol-1). Stearyl alcohol is a fatty alcohol sold in flakes, pastilles and beads, and is available in both NF (National Formulary) grade and kosher preparations. Fatty alcohols can be natural, derived from plant-based oils like palm or coconut, or they can be synthetic. They act as emulsifiers, emollients, viscosity controllers and dispersants. They function as chemical intermediates, most often used in surfactants to enhance foaming and cleaning properties in detergents and cleaners.

Use our stearyl alcohol as a nonionic surfactant and intermediate in the manufacture of plastics, textiles and waxes. It is also used as an ingredient in various lubricants, perfumes, personal care products and more. Our product is manufactured from renewable palm oil sources, without the use of GMOs.
