I have been wanting to try to use Octyldodecanol in a formulation and recently found to my surprise that it is an ingredient in many shaving creams on the market! I am trying to find a source and a usage rate but have found neither. I can get it from a reseller for the first try with it.
I am thinking that I might use in the 1% or lower range but that depends on the typical usage rate. I also don't want it to affect the creamy, dense lather of the shaving cream. Any info or recommendations will be appreciated!
