Product Information

Alpha Olefin Sulfonate (AOS) is a high-foaming but mild anionic surfactant. AOS has good foaming, good emulsification, creates dense foam with excellent wetting and cleansing action, and good skin mildness. Its resistance to hydrolysis makes it ideal in formulations containing salicylic acid and alpha hydroxy acid, it is relatively unaffected by changing water hardness; giving great flexibility to the formulator.

Easily biodegradable, AOS is environmentally friendly, giving a luxurious and excellent foaming performance that is gentle on the skin. Viscosity can be built with the addition of amides, betaines and/or salt.
