Product description

Pamolyn™ 100 Oleic Acid is an exceptionally high purity grade of oleic acid derived wholly from a tall oil fatty acid source. It is a low odor, essentially water white, low titer, oily liquid. Pamolyn™ 100 Oleic Acid is a unique commercial fatty acid in that it contains, typically, 90% oleic acid, all of which is in the naturally occurring cis-isomer form. Because Pamolyn™ 100 Oleic Acid contains only a low percentage of polyunsaturated acids, it has excellent oxidation resistance and color stability. Saturated fatty acids and unsaponifiables in Pamolyn™ 100 Oleic Acid are also outstandingly low. Pamolyn™ 100 is used in numerous cosmetic and personal care applications, functioning as an emulsifier or surfactant.
