Anionic Surfactant

Anionic Surfactant Ingredients or Chemicals 

Description of Anionic Surfactant: surfactants (Surface Active Ingredients) are ingredients used to reduce the surface tension between different substances. They function in many different ways such as dispersants, emulsifiers, detergents, wetting agents and foaming agents. Almost all Surfactants have the same structure, a long, hydrophobic tail and a hydrophilic head. The tails are very similar in most surfactants, the difference lies mainly in the hydrophilic head. This head can either be nonionic, anionic, cationic or amphoteric.                

Anionic Surfactants contain a negatively charged head, this aids in the formation of stable micelles. When mixed with water, this class of surfactants creates a lot of foam. Common Anionic Surfactants are sulfates, like SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) or SLES. Anionic surfactants are mostly used in soaps (for example Ssucate DSL30) and detergents (for example PhosEster 2EH 3EO) where a high quantity of foam is desired. A disadvantage of most Anionic Surfactants is that they are less suited for oily emulsions, they also cannot be used in combination with Cationic Surfactants.

Docusate Sodium
Item #: 1109
Ssucate DOE70 is an Anionic Surfactant with a wide range of applications and benefits. Frequently used as a dispersant for coatings, inks and in latex emulsions, it can also be used within oil and solvent emulsifications. When combined with nonionic surfactants, it can provide improved high temperature stability. It is also hydrolyzed by acids and alkalis, this anionic surfactant is generally stable between pH 5-9. In Cleaning applications often used in surface cleaners and cleaning sprays.

PhosEster 1215A is a nonionic surfactant based on a phosphate ester that demonstrates strong stability in acidic and alkaline systems and at high temperatures. This product is also broadly used across many industries. Applications include alkaline detergents, agricultural formulations, metal working fluids, textile auxiliaries, and emulsion polymerization. PhosEster 1215A is anionic and therefore is very suitable with anionic and also nonionic surfactants.

Disodium Laureth Sulphosuccinate
Item #: 1111
Preserved with Phenoxyethanol 0.9%, Ssucate DSL30 is a mild, nature-based anionic surfactant that is a clear, colorless liquid. When used in conjunction with SLES, a very dense foam is generated which can be ideal for luxurious bath, body and cleaning products. Since it is mild to the skin and reduces eye irritation, it can be used in gentle detergents and facial cleaners. Percent use ranges from 2-20% in a formula. Ssucate DSL30 can be adapted within a wide range of personal care and home care applications.
