General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Green Chemistry. This product is a biobased surfactant and is aligned with the 7th principle of Green Chemistry "Use of Renewable Feedstocks" and the 10th principle "Design for Degradation".

TWEEN 60 is a niosome.

Application

Polyethylene glycol sorbitan monostearate, or TWEEN 60, has been used in a study to assess encapsulation of functional lipophilic components in surfactant-based colloidal delivery systems. It has also been used in a study to investigate doxorubicin loaded magneto-niosomes for targeted drug delivery.

Features and Benefits

  • 100 % Renewable
  • 100 % Bio-based
  • Certified to the USDA BioPreferred Program
  • Lower carbon footprint than petrochemical-based versions
