The price trends of Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate (ALS) tipped towards the higher end during the first quarter of 2022 due to the rising costs of feedstock sulfuric acid, lauryl alcohol ( obtained from palm oil) and ammonia. Trade bottlenecks, heightened freight charges, and rising operational costs amid the robust demand from the downstream cosmetics and home-care industries caused ALS prices to soar.
With the Indonesian government announcing a ban on the export of feedstock palm oil, global prices soared. The lack of Black Sea sunflower oil in the market owing to the Russia-Ukrainian geopolitical confrontation caused the manufacturers to shift focus to palm and soybean oil. The Indonesian export ban tightened the already-constrained supplies. With palm oil being diverted to food industries, shortages in the home-care market caused the prices of ALS to inflate.
The European region directly suffered the consequences of Russian-Ukrainian enmity. With the European embargo on Russian oil and retaliatory sanctions against Russia and Belarus, a massive energy crisis was triggered in Europe, with repercussions across each sector. With the shortage of sunflower and olive oil (low harvest due to climate changes), the pressure was diverted towards palm and soybean oil. The ALS prices suffered a bit due to these higher feedstock prices but remained anchored. However, the price trends of ALS strengthened towards the end of the second quarter due to the removal of the export ban by Indonesian and increased demand from personal and home-care markets.
The price trends for Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate in the US domestic market closely imitated the global outlook. The prices remained strong throughout the first half of the said quarter owing to the trade restrictions, raised operations costs and healthy downstream demand.
Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate or ALS is a common fat-based molecule. It consists of a cationic polar sulfate group and an anionic non-polar hydrocarbon chain. The presence of these groups confers surfactant properties to this compound. Surfactant is commonly used in detergents, emulsifiers, and foaming agents. Lauryl sulfates are very high-foam surfactants that disrupt the surface tension of water by forming micelles at the interface, hence cleansing the fat/oil globules. It is often found in hygiene products like cleansers, shampoos, and soaps and is popular due to its wide variety of uses and relatively cheap cost.

Via Sulphonation Process: A sulfonating agent is added to lauryl alcohol during the first step. The sulfate is neutralized with ammonium hydroxide to form liquid ammonium dodecyl sulfate. Then concentration and drying are carried out to obtain a solid compound. The solid is subjected to crushing and molding to get the final desired product.
