Aliphatic ethoxylated alcohol: Ethoxylation is a chemical reaction in which ethylene oxide adds to a substrate. Such compounds are called alcohol ethoxylates.
- Alcohol ethoxylates and ethoxysulfates are surfactants, used widely in cosmetic and other commercial products.
- Alcohol ethoxylates (AE) and alcohol ethoxysulfates (AES) are surfactants found in products such as laundry detergents, surface cleaners, cosmetics, agricultural products, textiles, and paint. AES found in consumer products generally are linear alcohols, which could be mixtures of entirely linear alkyl chains or of both linear and mono-branched alkyl chains. A high-volume example of these is sodium laureth sulfate a foaming agent in shampoos and toothpastes, as well as industrial detergents.
