Cetearyl olivate

* The ester of cetearyl alcohol and the fatty acids derived from olive oil. Comes in the form of an oily wax.


A nonionic emulsifier that helps blend ingredients together in cosmetic solutions, usually ones with moisturizing properties. It's helps soften the skin & hair, and gives products a smooth and luxurious feel. It's most often used in conjunction with sorbitan olivate, and this blend most often appears as Olivem 1000 on an ingredient list. You can find this ingredient in several personal care products such as facial moisturizer, conditioner, anti-aging treatment, sunscreen, shaving cream, eye cream, lip gloss, cleanser, skin fader, scar treatment and body firming lotion.

Safety Measures/Side Effects:

The safety of cetearyl olivate has not been reviewed by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel. However, the CIR Expert Panel has assessed one of its main components, cetearyl alcohol, as non-toxic and non-sensitizing, classifying it as safe to use in cosmetic products. The EU Cosmetics Directive also allows cetearyl alcohol to be used in cosmetics as long as it's derived from plants.
