Sodium cetearyl sulfate is a combination of cetyl and stearyl sulfates, which are two alkyl sulfates made up of cetyl and stearyl fatty acids bound to a sulfate group. In oil-in-water emulsions, it is used as a co-emulsifier, whereas in products to be rinsed off, such as shampoos or shower gels, it is used as a foaming, cleaning agent.
