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".

Features and Benefits

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

Physical properties

The ECO Brij series of ethoxylated fatty alcohols are non-ionic surfactants manufactured using renewable sources. ECO Brij L4 is a mixture of tetraethylene glycol alkyl ethers, primarily dodecyl (C12) ether. The alkyl ether profile of ECO Brij L4 may differ lot-to-lot due to natural variability in the lipid starting material (palm oil).
