Fatty Acid Esters

Esters are formed when an alcohol reacts with an acid. This process is called "esterification". The name was coined in 1850 by the chemist Leopold Gmelin, as a short form of "acetic ether", the historical name for ethyl acetate.

CREMER OLEO esters are fatty acid esters produced mainly from renewable raw materials. They are composed of an alcohol (e.g. glycerol) and one or more fatty acids. As industrial active ingredients, they are used in a wide variety of applications, for example in the production of cosmetics, body care or hair care products.

The fatty acid ester MCT Oil is a food and is used, for example, as part of a ketogenic diet and for Bulletproof Coffee. There are many other applications in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries, for example as an emulsifier, coating agent or lubricant. Producers of CBD oils use it as a solvent. Food packaging manufacturers use MCT oil as a lubricant.
