Surfactants / Cleansing Agents

Surfactants are cleansing and foam forming agents. They form the base of almost all cleansing products available. They mix with water and fat of the skin to remove dirt. Surfactants can also act as wetting, conditioning, defatting, emulsifying and thickening agents. Surfactants can be classified as anionic, cationic, amphoteric and non-ionic.
