Solubilizing & Hydrotropes

Solubilizing & Hydrotrope Ingredients or Chemicals 

Description of Solubilizing & Hydrotrope: a common problem in many formulations is the insolubility of various ingredients in water. This makes it difficult to produce and package, as it is harder to control the desired concentrations. Solubilizing agents can help improve the solubility of other substances. A substance that would not normally dissolve in a particular solution can be dissolved with a solubilizing agent. Alternatively, hydrotropes are ingredients which increase the aqueous solubility of organic substances normally only slightly soluble in water. They can be used instead of common surfactants. Hydrotropes can improve the solubility of hydrophobic particles without forming micelles. 

Both solubilizing agents and hydrotropes are commonly used in various market segments and are popular ingredients for a variety of Personal Care, Cleaning and Pharmaceutical applications.
