The Importance of Domestic Supply for Oleochemicals

Here at Cremer North America, we provide globally sourced oleochemicals for a variety of applications. While that may sound straightforward, like any industry, the process isn’t without its challenges.

As we enter the second half of 2022, many industries are dealing with numerous hurdles in their various supply chains. But with our unique positioning and strong relationships with our suppliers, we are fortunate to be able to mitigate many common domestic supply chain issues to ensure our customers get the products they need when they need them.

Because demand remains at historically high levels, this is an important development to keep an eye on as our locally sourced supply of oleochemicals make up key ingredients in a wide array of products used by people everywhere.

Fortunately, the great team in our supply chain department excels at solving problems.

Consisting of a group of talented, hardworking individuals, our team consistently finds the right solutions whether on road, rail or water to make sure we deliver each order and meet our customers’ demands for products. This process is even more important when you consider some of the oleochemical products that are in our domestic supply chain. These are processed from their sources and used in cleaning and personal care items – markets which continue to be very strong, with no signs of slowing down.

The most common oleochemical forms are fatty acids, fatty alcohols, esters, and glycerin, which meet the demands of several crucial industries. Some of the most common consumer products that oleochemicals help to create include:

  • Soap (bar soap, hand soap, shower gel)
  • Shampoo
  • Skin lotions and creams
  • Fabric softeners
  • Toothpaste
  • Mouthwash
  • Flavor enhancers
  • Condiments
  • Soup
  • Baked goods
  • Paint
  • Industrial lubricants
  • Household cleaners
  • Printer Ink
  • Pesticides

No matter the order, we will gladly find a way to get it to our customers in the most efficient way possible, so that together we can continue making important products for the world to use.
