Spermaceti: manufacturing formula
With the discovery of the unique properties of spermaceti, active sperm whale fishing began, which subsequently led to a significant decrease in their population. Since 1986, a global ban on commercial whaling has been adopted. And the extraction of natural spermaceti stopped.
This event provoked cosmetic companies to create an artificially synthesized analogue of this substance. Today, almost all creams and pharmaceuticals, widely used cetyl palmitate, which is also called spermaceti-ersatz. Ersatz (Erzatz) in German means "substitute". Thanks to the use of the substitute, it became possible to achieve a stable consistency of the cream without losing its healing properties.

The tool with him does not give oily shine, which is typical for most fat creams. Because of its positive qualities, spermaceti is also used in the manufacture of hygienic lipsticks.

Owners of dry skin, say that the cream instantly removes the feeling of tightness after washing. Moreover, with regular use of funds can achieve a balance of sebum. In addition, a significant advantage of this cream is its cheapness.
