Dihydroxystearic acid (DHSA), derived from palm oil- or palm kernel oil-based oleic acid, offers interesting applications since its addition to oily phases and wax gels affects flow and spreading properties. Moreover, it interacts with the surfaces of pigments and fillers, improving color development as well as sensory attributes, as shown here.
