Kolliwax® CSA 70

A fatty alcohol mixture, preferred for its stability in emulsion formulations

Kolliwax® CSA 70 is a white to pale-yellow, wax-like, 70:30 blend of cetyl and stearyl alcohol; supplied as free-flowing micro pearls. With a raw material base of coconut oil, palm kernel oil, palm oil, and/or palm stearine, it functions as an O/W co-emulsifier and structure-building consistency factor for lotion and cream formulations. Kolliwax® CSA 70 is also suitable for use in ointment and gels. It is also a viscosity regulator and is used in suppository masses. Can be used in combination with fatty alcohols and other consistency factors.
