Potassium laurate is a colorless, granular carboxylate soap of lauric acid and potassium with known cleansing, dispersant, surfactant, and emulsifying properties. Lauric acid is 12-carbon carboxylate categorized as a medium chain fatty acid which is commonly isolated from coconut, babassu, palm kernel, olive, castor, or cottonseed oil. The excellent emulsifying efficiency of potassium laurate makes a sought-after ingredient in several everyday uses such as:

·       A dust suppression agent

·       Preservative

·       A binder

·       An anticaking agent

·       A foaming agent

·       Corrosion inhibitor

·       Deinking agent
