Cetyl Palmitate Ester Wax Discontinuing.

I have used this ingredient severally, and I found it good in my formula. I was particularly surprised that it is discontinuing. It blends well into my formula imparting its emulsifying and thickening properties. May be you need to carry a small stock until more people get to know how well it works.
