Excluding Sales Tax

Sodium laurate is the sodium salt of lauric (dodecanoic) acid, a C12 saturated medium chain fatty acid, occurs naturally in some vegetable oils, notably coconut oil. It has amphiphilic character and can form micelles and liquid crystalline phases in aqueous solution. Sodium laurate is easily soluble in water and ethanol. Sodium laurate is an exemplary surfactant that can be used as soap, detergent, emulsifier, lubricant, anticaking agent, release agent, foaming agent, wetting agent, drain care solubilizer, dispersant, thickener, etc. Sodium laurate is also an effective corrosion inhibitor which forms a superhydrophobic corrosion resistant monomolecular layer on metals such as steel, aluminum, etc.
