Ethyl lauroyl arginate HCl (LAE®) is synthesized from the esterification of arginine with ethanol, followed by a reaction of the ester with lauroyl chloride. This last component has its origin in palm oil, so it is tied to the supply chain of palm oil products.
At VEDEQSA we are committed to sustainability and reducing the impact that palm cultivation has on the environment and on local populations. For this reason, lauroyl chloride, the raw material used to manufacture LAE®, comes from certified sustainable palm oil under an RSPO supply chain.
Check with VEDEQSA’s technical team if you have any questions regarding LAE® or its formulations (MIRENAT ® and AMINAT ®).
