Acme-Hardesty Alcohol 1299 (also called 1-dodecanol, dodecyl alcohol and lauryl alcohol) is a palm-oil derived fatty alcohol with a wide range of industry applications. Our product is sold as a liquid in drums, isotanks and IBCs.

Fatty alcohols can be natural, derived from plant-based oils like palm or coconut, or they can be synthetic. They act as emulsifiers, emollients, viscosity controllers and dispersants. They function as chemical intermediates, most often used in surfactants to enhance foaming and cleaning properties in detergents and cleaners. The chemical reactions of primary alcohols include esterification, sulfonation and ethoxylation. Like their fatty acid counterparts, they come in a variety of carbon chain lengths. Acme-Hardesty can help you with veg-based Caprylic, Capric, Lauryl, Lauryl Myristyl, Cetearyl, Cetyl and Stearyl Alcohols.

Uses & Applications

Lauryl alcohol is used primarily as a chemical intermediate in surfactants containing fatty alcohol sulfates and ethoxylates. It is also used as a thickener, emollient and foam control agent in soaps and personal care products, among other applications. A certified kosher version is available – contact Acme-Hardesty directly for more information.
