- Uses & Applications
As noted above, 1-octanol is used primarily in the perfume industry and as a food additive. It has excellent defoaming and detergency properties, which makes it highly useful in the manufacture of cleaning products, too. Other potential uses for octyl alcohol include as an emulsifying agent in metal-working fluids and anti-rust emulsions, as well as a starting material for the production of sulfates such as ethoxylates and alkyl sulfates. There is also evidence to suggest that pharmaceutical-grade octyl alcohol may be useful in the treatment of neurological tremors.

Capryl alcohol is a non-animal-derived product and contains no tree nuts, peanuts, dairy, gluten or other common allergens. Certified kosher and GMO-free, it has a two-year shelf life when kept at room temperature. You should wear gloves and other proper handling equipment when using it, as the product is an eye and skin irritant. Keep octyl alcohol away from open flames and avoid heating above 90C.
