CAS # 308062-28-4
EC # 931-292-6
Flavol AO is a versatile amphoteric surfactant predominantly used in the formulation of personal care products, HI&I cleaners and laundry detergents serving as a foam booster and stabilizer, viscosity builder and surfactant formulations' detergency elevator.
 
Flavol AO is stable in hard waters, acidic environments, highly electrolyte and hypochlorite bleaching solutions. At lower pH values it earns partially cationic character leading to a conditioning effect on hair and skin, thus being widely used in conditioners, liquid soaps and shaving foams.
 
Owing to its unique properties Flavol AO is used in many other industrial applications.
