RTD HC-40 is a high HLB (~13) surfactant produced through the ethoxylation of hydrogenated Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil. It is widely utilized as a solubilizer, emulsifier and skin conditioning agent. As a nonionic emulsifier and solubilizer, it is compatible with nonionic, cationic and anionic surfactants and is effective even in systems that are relatively salty, acidic or alkaline. RTD HC-40 is an excellent solubilizer for perfume oils and may also be used as a co-emulsifier in the formulation of creams and lotions.
RTD HCO-60 is a high HLB surfactant (~16) produced through the ethoxylation of hydrogenated Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil. It is a solubilizer for essential oils and perfume oils and may be used as a co-emulsifier in the formulation of creams and lotions. It is utilized as a solubilizer, emulsifier and skin conditioning agent.
RTD IS-20 is a high HLB (~14) nonionic surfactant produced through the ethoxylation of Isostearyl Alcohol. It is a soft whitish paste that is used to solubilize fragrances, essential oils, and other hydrophobic compounds in aqueous systems.
