Behenyl alcohol, or docosanol, is a saturated fatty alcohol usually obtained from vegetable sources and non-genetically modified plants. It is widely used in cosmetic and skincare products, such as deodorants, lotions, lipsticks, foundations, ointments, body butter and scrubs, as a binding, thickening, emulsifying and opacifying agent. Behenyl alcohol aids in reducing the transparency of the product and thickening the consistency to obtain a spreadable texture. It is applied to the face and body for nourishing the skin and preventing moisture loss. As a result, it finds extensive applications for the manufacturing of personal care products, pharmaceuticals and nutritional supplements.
Significant growth in the cosmetic industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, the increasing consumer preference for organic and natural personal care and cosmetic products is providing a thrust to the market growth. Behenyl alcohol is widely used in anti-aging and anti-wrinkle creams to prevent acne and reduce the visibility of fine lines and skin discoloration. In line with this, various product innovations, such as the development of hypoallergenic herbal creams that are safe to be used on sensitive skins, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Product manufacturers are also launching innovative and aesthetically appealing bottles and packaging solutions to attract the attention of the consumers. Additionally, the widespread product adoption for the manufacturing of plant-based dietary and nutritional supplements is also favoring the growth of the market. Other factors, including the increasing expenditure capacities of the consumers, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
