Hydrotrope

Hydrotrope Ingredients or Chemicals 

Description of Hydrotrope: Hydrotropes are ingredients which increase the aqueous solubility of organic substances normally slightly soluble in water. They are an alternative to common surfactants. Surfactants have a hydrophilic head and a hydrophobic tail that form micelles which trap hydrophobic substances like grease and oil. Hydrotropes have the same hydrophilic head, but a much shorter hydrophobic tail. This allows hydrotropes to improve the solubility of hydrophobic particles without forming micelles. Unlike a lot of surfactants, most hydrotropes do not have a critical self-aggregating concentration. This makes them very appealing for a variety of Personal Care and Cleaning applications, like laundry detergents, surface cleaners, dishwashing agents, soaps, shampoos and hair conditioners. Examples of hydrotrope ingredients are PhosEster PSP4, IngreNox CP33 or Dipropionate 2EI60.
