Fatty Acids

Fatty Acids Product Applications

Fatty Acids are produced by the hydrolysis of the ester linkages in a fat or biological oil (both of which are triglycerides) with the removal of glycerol. The oil/fat can either be of animal origin (Tallow) or vegetable origin (Palm Oil). The by-product is Glycerine. Fatty Acids are used in almost all sectors of industry, with the tallow form having a diverse range of uses in candles, crayons, soap and detergents, chemicals and domestic cooking materials.

Fatty Acids are routinely used as raw materials for bar soap production as well as reactants for a wide variety of end products.
