ECO Tween 80
ECO TWEEN™ polysorbates are surfactants which are formed by reacting 100% bio-based ethylene oxide with 100% bio-based sorbitan esters (SPAN™ USDA BioPreferred Certified 100% bio-based). 100% bio-based ethylene oxide is made from 100% bio-based ethanol, derived from corn, sugar cane or biomass. SPAN sorbitan esters are 100% bio-based and are made from sorbitol derived from corn, and fatty acids derived from either palm oil, coconut oil, rape seed oil or tallow. ECO TWEEN polysorbate surfactants are hydrophilic, meaning they are generally soluble or dispersible in water, and excellent emulsifiers, forming oil-in-water or water-in-oil emulsions. ECO TWEEN polysorbates are used in many personal care applications as well as industrial cleaning, fiber finish, crop protection, water treatment, paints and coatings, lubricants, and many other industrial applications.
