Benfits of MONSA AOS-92 alpha olefin sulfonate

Excellent Detergency:  AOS-92 is a highly effective cleaning agent that efficiently removes dirt, grease, and oils. This makes it a valuable

ingredient in dishwashing liquids, laundry detergents, and all-purpose cleaners.

Superior Foaming:  It produces rich and abundant foam, often desired by consumers as a sign of cleaning power. This is particularly beneficial

in shampoos, shower gels, and foaming hand soaps.

Biodegradable: Unlike some traditional surfactants, AOS-92 is readily biodegradable, minimizing its environmental impact. This is an

increasingly important factor for eco-conscious consumers and manufacturers.

Mildness:  Compared to some harsher surfactants, AOS-92 is considered milder on the skin. This makes it suitable for use in personal care

products like shampoos, body washes, and baby products, where gentle cleansing is crucial.

Wide pH Compatibility: It functions effectively across a broad pH range, offering formulators flexibility in creating products with various

acidic, neutral, or slightly alkaline properties.

Excellent Hard Water Resistance:  AOS-92 performs well even in hard water conditions where some surfactants become less effective. This

ensures consistent cleaning performance regardless of water mineral content.
