  • Difference between C15-19 Alkane and C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate.

    In a recent read…I was reading marketing propaganda from Seppic on their C15-19 Alkane.  A cursory glance of the re-packers makes it look like a difficult item to acquire.

    The C12-15 AB is an easy acquisition.  So not looking for a molecular explanation…as google can do that… How would one describe the sensory/haptic differences of the two…and would there be a noticeable difference in formulation if using just a couple of percent?

    As I use a lot of Isoamyl laurate, you can also use that as a point of reference.

    If you are aware of a re-packer that sells the (L15) C15-19
    Alkane…let me know.
