Ethylhexyl Stearate Market Segmented By industry such as Personal Care, Textile, Chemicals having functionality such as Lubricating, Processing, Thickening, Dispersant
Ethylhexyl stearate also known as 2- Ethylhexyl Octadecanoate or Octyl stearate is a palm derivative which is renewable in nature and is extensively used in personal care industry. The stearate esters are prepared by the reaction between stearic acid and alcohol such as isopropyl, ethylhexyl, myistyl alcohol, cetyl, butyl among others. Stearic acid can be obtained form from animal origin as well as vegetable fats.
Ethylhexyl stearate is prepared by the reaction between stearic acid and ethylhexyl alcohol. Ethylhexyl stearate is a clear ester liquid which is free of suspended matter and is available in colourless liquid form. Ethylhexyl alcohol possess unique property of low viscosity and oily nature owing to which when applied on skin or lips it forms an hydrophobic film. Thereby, softens the skin and imparts smooth appearance.

Apart from personal care industry, ethylhexyl stearate also widely used as an intermediate, lubricating agent and surface active agent. Owing to these properties ethtylhexyl stearate is commonly used in the manufacturing of metal working fluids. Also, it offers good thermal stability and hence finds application in aluminium rolling, also is used in manufacturing of ink additives and paints. Hence, broad spectrum of application provides an opportunistic platform for the robust growth of ethylhexyl stearate market over the period of time.
However, with rising demand for organic and natural personal care products, various natural based ingredients are being used in the manufacturing of personal care products. Thereby, restraining the market growth of ethylhexyl stearate.
Moreover, stearic acid is being derived from animal fat which further refrains the growth of ethylhexyl stearate market with increasing adoption of vegan-based products. Moreover, it causes mild eye irritation and produces faint odor which may affect the adoption of ethyhexyl stearate based products among consumers.
