The Crodacols are a range of saturated fatty alcohols of natural, non-animal origin. They are wax-like emollients, stabilisers and viscosity builders in creams, lotions and anhydrous salves. The Crodacol range is used in tablets including delayed release solid dosage forms, topical, otic, ophthalmic, rectal and vaginal preparations. Stearyl alcohol is insoluble in water, soluble in ethyl alcohol and slightly soluble in acetone. Concentrations as high as 15% Crodacol in O/W emulsions are not uncommon. For most systems they are more generally employed at levels of between 1% and 10%.
