  • Undecylenic / Undecenoic Acid is an organic unsaturated fatty acid derived from natural castor oil. It is the common name of the undecenoic acid (CH2CH(CH2)8COOH).
  • Undecylenic acid is produced by cracking of Castor oil under pressure.
  • It is used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and perfumery including anti-dandruff shampoos, anti-microbial powders and as a musk in perfumes and aromas.
  • Undecylenic Acid is produced by the pyrolysis of castor oil. Undecylenic Acid has eleven carbons with a vinyl unsaturation. It is one of the few odd numbered acids. It meets the National Formulary requirements.
  • The Acid is derived by careful controlled hydrolysis of refined castor oil to yield ricinoleic acid (hydroxyoleic acid), which is a hydroxy fatty acid with a double bond in the 9-10 position and a hydroxyl on the 12th carbon.
  • The hydroxyl group and double bond provide a unique combination of reaction possibilities. Acids impart lubricity and rust-proofing qualities to soluble cutting oils.
  • The soaps, amine compounds and esters which are derived from the Acid are used in cutting oils,industrial lubricants, emulsifiers and metal-working compounds. Transparent bar soaps and high solids liquid soaps are made possible by the hydroxyoleic structure.
  •  Undecylenic Acid is commonly used in industrial fungicides and bactericides. It is also used as an intermediate in       chemical synthesis, polyamide plastics and fibers, perfume bases and synthetic floors.
  • Undecylenic acid is a natural fungicide and is FDA approved in over-the-counter medications for skin disorders or problems. It is the active ingredient in medications for skin infections, and relieves itching, burning, and irritation. For example, it is used against fungal skin infections such as athlete's foot, ringworm, Candida albicans.
