Uses and Applications of Lauric Acid
Lauric acid is the main fatty acid in coconut oil, and it is extremely popular in many bio-based products because it is so easily absorbed and because of its antimicrobial properties. Lauric acid
is used in coconut oil soap as well as in a variety of cosmetics. Benefits of lauric acid include the following:
- It is safe to handle and non-toxic, meaning it can be used in a wider variety of personal care products, even for those with sensitivities and allergies — except allergy to coconut.
- It has a pleasant, bay leaf scent that you can use in large amounts to make perfumes.
- It is soothing to the skin and antimicrobial, making it a perfect ingredient base for soaps and other cleansing products.
