Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Oxiteno
Polysorbate 80. ALKEST® TW 80 K acts as an anti-static agent, co-surfactant, humectant and dispersant/solubilizer of fragrances and oils. It is made up of ethoxylated sorbitan esters derived from the reaction of sorbitol with fatty acids sourced from a vegetable source. The presence of the polyoxyethylene chain makes it soluble or dispersible in water, which favors its application in oil-in-water (O/W) emulsions. It is hydrophilic in nature having high HLB values. ALKEST® TW 80 K is used in body washes, hand soaps, shampoos and for as mild products, such as baby shampoos.
