Sulfosuccinates are metal (sodium) salts of alkyl ester of sulfosuccinic acid. Sulfosuccinate surfactants possess excellent foaming, wetting, emulsifying, and solubilizing properties. Additionally, these surfactants exhibit high surface activity, biodegradability, and low critical micelle concentration. They are used in various types of cleansing formulations, household detergents & cleaners, industrial cleaners, textiles, pharmaceuticals, polymers, paints & coatings, leather, printing, and agriculture.
Surfactants may act as detergents, wetting agents, emulsifiers, foaming agents, and dispersants. There are a variety of surfactants on the market. Sulfosuccinates are considered very mild, with good foaming and detergent properties. Considering the cost, companies may choose cheap anionic surfactants to replace sulfosuccinates, especially in developing countries.
Green surfactants from waste biomass and agricultural raw materials are gaining popularity as companies look to move away from petroleum feedstock. More companies are expected to use sustainable sourced materials. For instance, Clariant’s GlucoTain range of sugar-based surfactants is made from RSPO certified palm oil and coconut oils.
Personal care and home care companies are looking at alternatives to synthetic surfactants and emulsifiers because of growing pressure to use sustainable materials. Consumer demand for natural & organic products, as well as growing awareness of the environmental & health impacts of contentious chemicals are driving this change.
Consumers are generally quick-change, to get or use ne ...
