BASF Care Creations’ Cetiol Ultimate


Cetiol Ultimate (INCI: Undecane (and) Tridecane) is an ultra-light, volatile emollient and a natural alternative to cyclomethicone. One hundred percent renewably-based and readily biodegradable, it is Ecocert-, COSMOS- and Natrue-approved. This high-spreading emollient enhances textures in creams and lotions, while performance testing has shown, versus cyclomethicone, its comparable pigment-wetting and improved color-stability in color cosmetics.
