Amphoteric Surfactants

Strong co-surfactants for countless applications

What do we offer?

Mild and easy, skin-friendly amphoteric surfactants

Amphoteric surfactants can be anionic, cationic or uncharged, independent of their acid content or pH value. They are therefore compatible with other surfactant types and are often used as co-surfactants in an incredibly wide range of applications.

Since they are mild and easy on the skin, they are used in baby products, shampoo, cosmetics and disinfectants, and thanks to their strong foaming properties, in dish soap. While their pure cleaning power is usually weak, they can also be used as an anti-static agent.

We offer the following high-quality amphoteric surfactant products:
