Alcohol ethoxylates are the largest family of nonionic surfactants. Each consists of a hydrophobic group derived from either oleochemical or petrochemical sources combined with various moles of ethylene oxide.
These play an important role in home care, personal care, oil & gas, agrochemicals, and host of other market areas. The ethoxylates act as the wetting agent, solubilizer, detergent, dispersant, emulsifier, emollient, and degreaser.
Oxiteno’s product line covers an extensive range of hydrophobes, both linear and branched, and a wide range in the level of ethoxylation. Many Oxiteno products are listed on the Cleangredients1 and can be Kosher, Halal, and/or RSPO mass balance certified2.
