INCI: Polysorbate - 20
Molecular weight: 1227.5 g / mol
Molecular Formula: C58H114O26
Polysorbate-20 is a nonionic surfactant having an HLB value of 16.20 so it is ideal to emulsify oil and water, known commercially Tween 20.
It is a surfactant whose stability and relative non-toxicity allows it to be used in detergents and emulsifiers in many domestic, scientific, food, industrial, cosmetic and pharmacological applications.
