Global Surfactant Cleansers and Adjuvants Market: 4 Forecast Highlights for 2017 - 2026 from Fact.MR
Published : 12 Feb 2018 Industry: Consumer Goods
A surfactant is a surface active agent and has molecules that have two opposite properties. One portion of the molecule of the surfactant is polar and water-loving and the other portion of the molecule is hydrophobic or water fearing. It is due to this dual nature of the molecules of the surfactants, they can work with both water soluble and water insoluble molecules. With the help of the surfactants, cleansing and building of foam in soaps and shampoos is done as it works at the surface between water and fat. Since the surfactants have the property of being mixed with water and fat in the skin, allowing the dirt to be cleaned. As far as the latest trends in the surfactants market are concerned, mildness and moisturization are the important factors. Also, there is a trend of consumers preferring sulfate-free surfactants, more so in personal care applications like shampoos and body washes.
