Cas N°: 112-13-0

Chemical Name: C10H19ClO

Synonyms: Decanoyl chloride / Capric chloride

Carboxylic acids & Derivatives

AdvensCare DC is a colorless liquid used as an intermediate
for the synthesis of cosmetics ingredients including but
not limited to emollients, solvents, masking agents,
solubilisers as well as skin conditioning agents such as
caprylic/capric triglycerides.

Caprylic/capric triglyceride can be produced synthetically
via Fischer type esterification methods promoted by the
use of an acid chloride such as AdvensCare DC.

Caprylic/capric triglyceride is a versatile ingredient
which finds its primary uses as emolient, dispersing and
thickening agent in skin care and make-up products.
