What are natural surfactants? What distinguishes natural surfactants from their derived counterparts?

December 11,2023

The topic of natural ingredients is relatively new and complex. Popularly speaking, the definition of what is natural or unnatural depends on the environment and culture.

Not all surfactants labeled as natural are genuinely derived from natural sources.


Distinguishing between natural surfactants and derived natural surfactants:

To date, almost all surfactants in use are not inherently natural. However, many surfactants are increasingly derived from natural sources. A growing number of surfactants based on natural compounds are being manufactured. Surfactants such as Alkyl Polyglucoside(APG),Amino Acid Surfactants, and some others like Coconut Oil Sodium Sulfate are typically derived from natural sources, depending on their manufacturing processes.
