A non-ionic surfactant is a molecule that does not dissociate in water by releasing a counter ion like anionic, cationic or amphoteric tensides.
Our range of alkanolamides is based on various fatty acids and monoethanolamine or diethanolamine. The products based on diethanolamine can be subdivided into two groups for cosmetics: - Super-amides based on a 1:1 molar ratio of amine to fatty acid. Due to the process there is a minimum amount of glycerin left in the product. - Amides based on a 1:1 ratio of amine to a vegetable oil

Amine oxides are non-ionic surfactants derived from natural renewable feed-stocks. Amine oxides are excellent detergents, foam boosters and foam stabilisers and can be used in formulations to provide viscosity, grease emulsification and soil suspension. Our product may be used in a wide range of applications including: • Shampoos • Bubble baths • Hair conditioners

One of the most used groups in traditional formulations is ethoxylated cetostearylalcohol

The only vegetable oil with free hydroxyl groups in the fatty acid chain is castor oil. These free OH groups allow for the production of a range of emulsifiers and solubilisers.

Anionic surface-active (surfactant) substances are used as a foundation in a large number of formulations. This group of surfactant substances is the oldest type of surface-active substance used by man.

Amphoteric surface-active (surfactant) substances have the intrinsic ability to change the charge from cationic via zwitterions to anionic, assuming an increasing pH. Amphoteric surfactants are extremely suitable for use in formulations that contain a lot of electrolytes and are compatible with all other types of surfactants.

Our blends offer a lot of advantages for our customers. Not only does it save time and money in your R&D, it also saves valuable warehouse space as you buy one product instead of multiple products. The systems below have been optimised for the use described.
