Caprylic acid also has antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. Caproic (or hexanoic) acid is found naturally in various plant and animal fats and oils. Applications for caproic acid include food, drug and cosmetic uses. Pure cut fatty acids are also used in the manufacture of industrial cleaners, lubricant, detergents and personal care applications.
