Chemours Glycolic Acid

Glycolic acid from Chemours, produced in Belle West Virginia, is the most consistent product available on the market today. Chemours has the highest standards and capability for product stewardship, supply, and quality. The competitive producers can only promise these things; Chemours has delivered on them.

Reliable Supply

  • Competitive glycolic acid is made by multiple, and generally very small, companies with limited resources and experience. Most competitive technical grade glycolic acid, particularly that manufactured in China, is made from monochloroacetic acid (MCA).

  • The primary market for MCA is agricultural chemicals. In times of tight supply, MCA producers will likely supply their customers that give them the most volume—agricultural chemical producers—thus making the supply chain even more volatile.

  • Chemours has a proven track record on meeting and exceeding customer needs for product supply for over 80 years.

Reliable Quality

  • MCA route manufacturers use a batch process and have very limited personnel and analytical capability, making it difficult to ensure product quality and consistency. Although the initial load or two may be acceptable, there is so much variability as to almost guarantee that product consistency will not be maintained over time. 

  • Competitive producers also have hundreds of diverse MCA suppliers, whose product quality varies greatly—also directly impacting the glycolic acid quality.

  • Chemours operates a continuous process 24/7, producing consistent product day after day.
