Texapon (SLES)

Texapon (SLES) Definition

Texapon (SLES) N70NA is a sodium laureth sulfate used in clear and pearlescent, medium to high viscosity shampoos, bath and shower products. It is a high active ether sulfate manufactured from a special mid-cut fatty alcohol containing an average of 2 moles of ethylene oxide with maximum control of unwanted by-products, including those causing color and odor. This product has an unsulfated alcohol content of 2.50% max., a pH value (10% sol.) of 7.0-9.0, and a FAES (MW 381) of 68.0-72.0% Sodium laureth sulfate (SLES), an accepted contraction of sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES), is an anionic detergent and surfactant found in many personal care products (soaps, shampoos, toothpaste, etc.). SLES is an inexpensive and very effective foaming agent. SLES, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), ammonium lauryl sulfate (ALS), and sodium pareth sulfate are surfactants that are used in many cosmetic products for their cleaning and emulsifying properties. They behave similarly to soap.

Texapon is also known as Sodium lauryl ether sulfate(SLES), Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate, Sodium Mono-Dosyl Sulphate, Sodium lauryl sulfate, Sodium Dodecano Sulphate
