Polysorbate 20 (Tween 20) is a polysorbate-type nonionic surfactant formed by the ethoxylation of sorbitan before the addition of lauric acid. Its stability and relative nontoxicity allows it to be used as a detergent and emulsifier in a number of domestic, scientific, and pharmacological applications.

USES:

  • In food as a wetting agent;
  • For cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications;
  • In biotechnical applications: to saturate binding sites on surfaces, as a solubilizing agent of membrane proteins, as a washing agent in immunoassays; It has been used as an emulsifying agent for the preparation of stable oil-in-water emulsions;
  • To remove stamps from envelopes and to remove residues from stamps;
  • Polysorabte 20 can also be used as a viscosity modifier, anti-stat, stabilizer and dispersing agent.

It is the final ingredient necessary when combining fragrance oil with water-based products. It is perfect for keeping the product clear and un-cloudy & prevents any separation of the oils or fragrance.
