Fatty Acids

Fatty Acids Product Applications

Fatty Acids are produced by the hydrolysis of the ester linkages in a fat or biological oil (both of which are triglycerides) with the removal of glycerol. The oil/fat can either be of animal origin (Tallow) or vegetable origin (Palm Oil). The by-product is Glycerine. Fatty Acids are used in almost all sectors of industry, with the tallow form having a diverse range of uses in candles, crayons, soap and detergents, chemicals and domestic cooking materials.

Fatty Acids are routinely used as raw materials for bar soap production as well as reactants for a wide variety of end products.

Canadian Glacial Oceanic Clay


Glacial Oceanic Clay is a mineral rich clay found uniquely in the province of British Columbia. The clay, deposited as sediment in the ocean, is enriched with beneficial phytoplankton. It is a totally naturally sourced product which is scooped then dried naturally by Ironwood Clay Company in Canada. Glacial Oceanic clay rests beneath a blanket of humus and is constantly refreshed by the ocean. This precious material is collected with every precaution taken to ensure that the pristine site is preserved forever. The Clay is harvested with zero ecological footprint.

A superior product with impressive results - hydration up, sebum and oil down with significant average of 95% in skin surface sebum after application of Glacial Oceanic Clay on face. The skin feels comfortable and moist. The osmotic power of the clay pulls moisture up from deep inner tissues to hydrate the surface of the skin and also cleans the skin without dehydrating it. Glacier Oceanic Clay is a must for open-pored, acne-prone skin types. It also has a therapeutic effect on eczema prone skin and calm down sensitive skin.

Packing: Glacial Oceanic Clay Powder 10kg bag in a box.
Glacial Oceanic Wet Clay (Sea Silt) 25kg bag in a bucket.
