Surfactants: the core ingredient in detergents

May 23,2024

Dishwashing liquid is a key product for keeping your home clean and hygienic, helping to remove food residues, grease and stains from plates, cutlery and cookware to ensure a clean, safe dining experience for you and your family. Their excellent cleaning results are mainly due to one key ingredient - surfactants, of which anionic surfactants are the most commonly used.

Anionic surfactants: the source of cleaning power

Anionic surfactants create negatively charged particles in water that help break down and remove dirt and grease. These ingredients are the most important source of cleaning power in detergents, making up the largest percentage of the formulation.

Common anionic surfactants:

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate : Plant-derived surfactant with excellent foaming properties and cleaning power.

Sodium Laureth Sulfate : A close relative of SLS, it has mild cleansing power and reduces skin irritation.

Alkylbenzene Sulphonic Acid: Highly effective petroleum-based surfactants that are particularly suited to removing stubborn grease and stains.

Knowing the surfactants in detergents gives us a better understanding of how they clean, so we can choose more wisely what's right for our families.
