Natural Applications
Radia® and Nourypol oleochemicals are used for their functional properties such as chemical reactivity, lubricating action, stabilisation of emulsions, etc. The industry also places the highest value on the fact that most oleochemicals are completely non-toxic and do not cause skin nor eye irritation. In an environmentally-aware society, both the industry and lawmakers increasingly appreciate the ecological safety of nearly all oleochemicals.

Radia® and Nourypol oleochemicals are used in all industrial sectors. Often, such as for the production of soaps, candles, synthetic lubricants and resins, oleochemicals form the base raw material. In many other applications, such as for lubricants, cosmetics and food products, they are used as additives enhancing the properties of the end product. In some processes, such as the de-inking of old paper, the production of plastic objects, the extraction of minerals or oil drilling,oleochemicals are auxiliary raw materials for production.
