Alcohols C12-16

Laurel/myristyl alcohol is a mix of C12 (laurel alcohol) and C14 (myristyl alcohol) fatty alcohols. Used in many industrial and manufacturing processes, C12-16 alcohols can be derived from both organic and synthetic sources, though all Acme-Hardesty products are 100-percent vegetable-based and GMO-free.

Uses & Applications

Fatty alcohols have many uses in today’s manufacturing facilities. They are often employed as a chemical intermediate when producing surfactants, detergents and esters used in cleaning products. As well, they possess natural foaming stabilizing and amphipathic properties, adding to their usefulness as a detergent or soap. Other uses of fatty alcohols include as an emollient, emulsifier or viscosity modifier in cosmetics and personal care products, as well as in lubricants and greases. They can also be used to process textiles.

Safe Handling of Lauryl/Myristyl Alcohol

Acme-Hardesty sells laurel/myristyl alcohol in both liquid and pastille form. It has a mild odor and decomposes when subjected to excessive heat. You should wear gloves and protective eyewear when handling any C12-16 alcohol. In the event of accidental exposure, wash with plenty of clean water and consult a doctor if symptoms persist.
