What is Coconut Fatty Acids Distillate?
Coconut Fatty Acid Distillate or CFAD is the by-product collected from oil refineries which contains lauric fatty acid as major saturated fatty acid. The dark in colour oil present in liquid form is highly demanded for manufacturing of toilet soap. Coconut Oil Fatty Acid Distillate exhibits an acid value in the range of 263 – 273.
CFAD is useful for applications where higher quality fatty acid is specified where salts have good solubility for use in liquid applications.
