Preparation of Cetyl alcohol: With the demise of commercial whaling, cetyl alcohol is no longer primarily produced from whale oil but instead either as an end-product of the petroleum industry, or produced from vegetable oils such as palm oil and coconut oil.

Uses of Cetyl alcohol: it is used in the cosmetic industry as a surfactant in shampoos, or as an emollient, emulsifier or thickening agent in the manufacture of skin creams and lotions. It is also employed as a lubricant for nuts and bolts.
