What are NEODOL PC products?

NEODOL for Personal Care refers to the broad range of primary alcohol derivatives manufactured using Shell Higher Olefins Process (SHOP) and Shell Hydroformylation (SHF) technologies. Typical NEODOL alcohols and ethoxylates have at least 20% 2-alkyl branching and odd and even carbon chains.

Sulfates made with NEODOL PC 100 and PC 200 alcohol derivatives have similar viscosity profiles, water hardness sensitivities and surfactant properties compared to traditional oleo-derived products.

NEODOL PC 600 is a 100% mono-methyl branched alcohol which is a blend of C16 and C17 high purity primary alcohols. It is manufactured using modified Oxo Mono Methyl branched alcohol technology, a process route that delivers odour-free fluid alcohols with high molecular weights.
