Hexadecyl palmitate is an organic compound commonly used in the cosmetic industry as an emollient, thickener and skin conditioning agent. Cetyl palmitate is derived from a mixture of cetyl alcohol (a fatty alcohol) and palmitic acid (a saturated fatty acid). It is often used in skin care products such as moisturizers, lotions, and creams to improve their texture and Helps them glide smoothly on the skin. In addition to its use in cosmetics, cetyl palmitate is used in other industries including pharmaceuticals, food additives and lubricants. Overall, it's considered safe for use in personal care products, but like any other ingredient, it may cause irritation or an allergic reaction in some people.

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
