Product Introduction:

2-Octyl-1-dodecanol, also known as octyldodecanol, is a Guerbet alcohol because it has a branch at the beta position. Compared to arachidyl alcohol, this linear alcohol polymer with the same molecular weight has a lower melting point but lower volatility.

2-Octyl-1-dodecanol is a colorless and transparent liquid under normal conditions. Soluble in: mineral oil, cyclopentasiloxane, isopropyl myristate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, olive oil, etc.

Octyldodecanol can be used to study its interaction with hexameric capsules of resorcinol arenes. It has good penetration ability and good solubility for functional additives.

Octyldodecanol has a transdermal promoting effect and can promote the transdermal absorption of naproxen. For drugs with poor transdermal performance, microemulsion with octyldodecanol as auxiliary material can improve the transdermal speed.

Because of its unique properties, 2-Octyl-1-dodecanol is suggested for use in body lotions, body cleans, oil/water softening creams, cleansing creams, anti-wrinkle lotions, skin lotions, hydrating lipsticks, makeup.
