Philippine Oleochemical Manufacturers Association (POMA)



Oleochemicals and surfactants are important ingredients for soaps and detergents and other growing specialty downstream applications. The chemical industry recognizes a trend towards using organic and renewable materials as alternative to petrochemical feedstocks.

Coconut oil typically makes up 90% of all oleochemicals. The subsector provides the coconut industry a dependable and value-added market- making it less dependent on direct exports of crude coconut oil.
