Could lactic acid help improve your application?

Lactic acid and its derivatives give you one thing above all else – versatility. This equates to multiple benefits across a broad range of applications - including the surfanctant industry.

Specifically, lactic acid is an ideal base catalyst killer/quencher in the ethoxylation processes. It’s highly soluble in surfactants compared to other acids used in this process; while the resultant salts have no odor, or skin irritation, while also acting as an integral humectant.
