What is Acido Laurico?

Lauric acid is a straight-chain saturated fatty acid with the chemical formula C12H24O2, which can also be expressed as CH3(CH2)10COOH. Lauric acid contains twelve carbon atoms in its molecule and is a medium-chain fatty acid. Its molecular structure gives it typical fatty acid properties, including reacting with alkali to form corresponding salts (laurates) and esterification to form ester compounds.

Lauric acid is usually a white or colorless solid at room temperature, with a slight laurel oil aroma and a high melting point. This is because the melting point of saturated fatty acids is usually related to the length of the carbon chain. The longer the chain, the higher the melting point. The melting point of lauric acid is about 44°C, which means that it is usually solid at room temperature, but can easily melt into a liquid.

The source of lauric acid is mainly vegetable oil. Although its name comes from lauric oil, the lauric acid content in lauric oil is actually not high, only about 1-3%. In contrast, lauric acid is found in higher concentrations in coconut oil (about 45-52%), palm seed oil (about 44-52%), and babassu seed oil (about 43-44%), which are the main sources of lauric acid for industrial extraction.

Acido Laurico Uses

Daily Chemicals and Personal Care
Surfactants: Acido Laurico is a key ingredient in the manufacture of personal cleaning products such as soap, shower gel, shampoo and toothpaste. It reacts with alkaline substances to form laurate, the main component of soap, which has good detergency and emulsification properties.
Cosmetics: Lauric acid derivatives, such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and diethanolamine lauryl sulfate, are used in cosmetics as surfactants and foaming agents, especially in facial cleansers, shampoos and foam bath products.

Food Industry
Food Additives: Acido Laurico and its derivatives can be used as emulsifiers, preservatives and antioxidants in food. For example, in chocolate manufacturing, lauric acid can be used as an emulsifier to improve taste and texture.
Flavoring: Certain lauric acid derivatives such as lauric acid esters can be used as flavor additives to increase the aroma of food and beverages.

Pharmaceutical Industry
Drug Carriers: Acido Laurico can be used in the liposome formulation of drugs as a component of the drug delivery system to help the drug be better absorbed by the human body.
Antibacterial and antiviral: Lauric acid has certain antibacterial and antiviral properties and can be used to make some ointments and anti-infective preparations.

Chemical and Manufacturing
Surface treatment agent: Acido Laurico is used to prepare surface treatment agents for bonding to improve bonding strength.
Plastic and Rubber Industry: As a lubricant and stabilizer, lauric acid is used in the processing of plastics and rubber, as well as in the manufacture of alkyd resins.
Chemical fiber oil: Lauric acid is a raw material for the production of chemical fiber oil, which is used to improve the smoothness and processing properties of fibers.

Agriculture and Pesticides
Insecticides: Acido Laurico can be used as a component of biological pesticides to utilize its toxic effects on pests.
Fertilizer additives: Lauric acid can also be used as an additive in fertilizers to promote crop growth and nutrient absorption.

Energy and Environmental Protection
Energy Storage Materials: Research on Acido Laurico and its derivatives has made progress in the field of energy storage materials, exploring its possibility as an electrode material.

Other fields
Fragrances and flavors: Acido Laurico and its derivatives are used in synthetic flavors and are widely used in perfumes, flavors and household cleaning products.
Lubricants: The lubricating properties of lauric acid make it used as a lubricant in the machinery and automotive industries.

Acido Laurico in Cosmetics for Outstanding Applications

Cleaning function: Acido Laurico and its derivatives (such as sodium lauryl sulfate, i.e. sodium dodecyl sulfate, SLS) are powerful surfactants that can reduce the surface tension of water, making it easier for grease and dirt to be washed off by water. This is an important ingredient in cleansing products such as facial cleansers, shampoos, and shower gels.
Emulsification: Lauric acid can be used as an emulsifier to help the oil phase and the water phase mix evenly to form a stable emulsion or paste, which is commonly found in products such as lotions, creams, and facial masks.

Emulsifier stabilizer:
Acido Laurico helps maintain the stability of the cosmetic system, prevents oil and water separation, and ensures the uniformity and texture of the product during storage and use.

Preservative effect:
Acido Laurico has certain antibacterial properties, which can inhibit the growth of microorganisms, thereby playing a preservative role and extending the shelf life of cosmetics.

Bactericidal effect:
For certain types of bacteria and fungi, Acido Laurico can destroy their cell membranes and has a bactericidal effect. It is often used in products for treating acne or other skin problems caused by bacteria.

Adjusting Viscosity:
Acido Laurico can act as a thickener to help adjust the consistency of cosmetics, making them easier to apply and use.

Skin Feeling:
After using cleansing products containing Acido Laurico, the skin will feel refreshed, but due to its strong cleansing ability, excessive use may cause dry skin, so a subsequent moisturizing step is usually required.
