PRIMARY SURFACTANTS


Surfactants are a primary component of cleaning detergents. The word surfactant means surface active agent. As the name implies, surfactants stir up activity on the surface you are cleaning to help trap dirt and remove it from the surface.

The terms “surfactant” and “wetting agent” are often used interchangeably, but they are not synonyms. All surfactants are wetting agents; however, not all wetting agents are surfactants

Surfactants are compounds that lower the surface tension (or interfacial tension) between two liquids, between a gas and a liquid, or between a liquid and a solid. Surfactants may act as detergents, wetting agents, emulsifiers, foaming agents, and dispersants.

How do surfactants work?

As surfactants absorb they break these interactions. The intermolecular forces between surfactant and water molecule are much lower than between two water molecules and thus surface tension will decrease. When the surfactant concentration is high, they form micelles

Where are surfactants used?

Surfactants are used in firefighting and pipelines (liquid drag reducing agents). Alkali surfactant polymers are used to mobilize oil in oil wells). 

Surfactants are used as plasticizer in nanocellulose Ferrofluids, and leak detectors. 

Surfactants are used with quantum dots in order to manipulate growth

Here are ten things that surfactants can do in cosmetics.

1 – Combine oil and water. One of the most useful things surfactants allow you to do in your formulations is to blend oils and water.
2 – Cleaning.
3 – Foaming. 
4 – Conditioning. 
5 – Spreading. 
6 – Solubilizing. 
7 – Opacifying. 
8 – Thickening.
