An ester is a combination of an acid (carbonic acid) and an alcohol (hydroxyl-group). Esters are stable due to a “strong” covalent bond in an acid environment. The function of esters are: flavor, aroma/perfumes, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. It enhances non-corrosivity. The esterifying technology has proven to be:

  • Effective at lower dosage (high concentration)

  • Promote a homogenous spread due to the ester’s ability to reduce surface tension

  • Esters of fatty acids are well known emulsifiers and surfactants
