  • Undecylenic / Undecenoic Acid is an organic unsaturated fatty acid derived from natural castor oil. It is the common name of the undecenoic acid (CH2CH(CH2)8COOH).
  • A white or very pale yellow, crystalline mass or colourless
    or pale yellow liquid, practically insoluble in water, freely soluble in alcohol and in fatty and essential oils.
  • It is used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and perfumery including anti-dandruff shampoos, anti-microbial powders and as a musk in perfumes and aromas. Undecylenic acid is produced by cracking of Castor oil under pressure.
  • Undecylenic acid is a natural fungicide and is FDA approved in over-the-counter medications for skin disorders or problems. It is the active ingredient in medications for skin infections, and relieves itching, burning, and irritation.
  • Undecylenic Acid is produced by the pyrolysis of castor oil. Undecylenic Acid has eleven carbons with a vinyl unsaturation. It is one of the few odd numbered acids. It meets the National Formulary requirements.
  • The Acid is derived by careful controlled hydrolysis of refined castor oil to yield ricinoleic acid (hydroxyoleic acid), which is a hydroxy fatty acid with a double bond in the 9-10 position and a hydroxyl on the 12th carbon.
  • Undecylenic Acid is commonly used in industrial fungicides and bactericides. It is also used as an intermediate in chemical synthesis, polyamide plastics and fibers, perfume bases and synthetic floors.
  • Undecylenic acid topical (for the skin) is a fatty acid that works by preventing fungus from growing on the skin.
  • Undecylenic acid topical is used to treat skin infections that are caused by fungus, such as athlete's foot, jock itch, diaper rash, prickly heat, excessive sweating in the groin area, itching, burning, and chafing. Undecylenic acid topical may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
