As one the world’s largest producers of natural Fatty Alcohols, KL-Kepong Oleomas (“KLKOM”) produces a wide variety of high quality oleochemical products.
KLKOM’s key products are PALMEROL Fatty Alcohols, PALMERE Fractionated Methyl Esters and PALMFONATE Methyl Ester Sulphonates (MES). They are 100% vegetable oil based and produced from readily renewable and sustainable natural resources.
PALMEROL Fatty Alcohols are widely used as emulsifying, dispersing, wetting agents or surfactants. C12 to C18 alcohols provide starting materials for all surfactant types. PALMERE Fractionated Methyl Esters are mainly employed as intermediates for chemical synthesis and used as fuel bio-additives. PALMFONATE MES is the main ingredient in powder or liquid detergents. The newly launched SYMPARE MES is a sulphate-free cleaning agent for use in the personal care categories. SYMPARE MES is listed in the CleanGredients database as it meets the EPA’s Safer Choice Standard.
In 2021, KLKOM has successfully added TENSOPOL Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (“SLS”) and TENSAGEX Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate (“SLES”) into their product portfolio as primary surfactants home and personal care industries.
KLKOM’s manufacturing plant is strategically located at Westport, Malaysia, allowing direct pipeline access from the plant to the port, for fast and effective supply and distribution to international markets.
