Octyldodecanol….and what it does to haptics? Where do I use it.
A while back….I purchased Octyldodecanol for a project, and never ended up using it. I have also recently been reading some older George Deckner articles…and he listed octyldodecanol as an ‘emollient used to modify skin feel’.
Since I have never used it….I do not understand what type of skin feel will it typically bring to formulation? (I am typically using behenyl alcohol…as I tend to think cetyl is too unctuous for my preference.)
As a low viscosity liquid…yet a fatty alcohol…will it provide any increase of viscosity in formulation?
What situations….is this a ‘go to’ ingredient? (In the context of emulsions)
I just want to make sure…I have not missed out on something special….by never opening this bottle!
Current project is a deo cream…and I think this product gets some facetime in deo products?!
