RTD FA-18/95 Stearyl Alcohol Deo Grade is white waxy solid of low to moderate comedogenicity, useful as an emulsion stabilizer, thickener and opacifier at use levels of 0.3 – 4%. It is specially designed, however, for use in antiperspirant-deodorant sticks as a co-structurant at use levels of 15 – 20%.
