Synonyms: fatty alcohol ethoxylate sulphonated; poly oxy ethylene alkyl alcohol sulphonated; poly ethylene alkyl ether, RO(OCH2CH2)nSO3Na with R=C12-C14 and n=1-2-3, in which R is the fatty alcohol chain and n is the average number of moles ethylene oxide per molecule.
Ethoxylated fatty alcohols are mild, non-ionic surfactants based on RSPO-MB palm kernel oil. When sulphonated, the result is the most used anionic surfactant in liquid detergents; SLES.
Sirius International and its partners managed to perform the ethoxylation and sulphonation steps by exclusively adding ethylene oxide from a vegetal source and sulphur exclusively from a natural source as well. No petrochemistry is involved in our Ethoxybrite SLES products. As such, Ethoxybrite SLES biobased is the ideal raw material for any green, 100% sustainable, ecologically certified hand soap or other liquid detergent.
Ethoxybrites are liquid raw materials and ideal for use in liquid detergents.
Ethoxybrites should be added to water while stirring. When water is added to Ethoxybrite, the viscosity of the solution can temporarily increase.
