Cetearyl Olivate is the ester of cetearyl alcohol and the fatty acids derived from olive oil. This non-ionic oil combines the properties of olive oil with other naturally derived ingredients making it a mild emulsifier. Cetearyl Olivate facilitates the retention of moisture in the skin and increases active ingredient's resistance to water and sweat. It helps soften the skin and hair and gives creams a smooth and luxurious feel.
