100% bio-based. ECO BRIJ™ fatty alcohol ethoxylates are surfactants formed by reacting 100% bio-based ethylene oxide with a 100% bio-based fatty alcohol. 100% bio-based ethylene oxide is made from 100% bio-based ethanol, derived from corn, sugar cane or biomass. The 100% bio-based fatty alcohol is derived from either palm oil, palm kernel oil, or coconut oil. The ECO BRIJ series contains both hydrophilic and lipophilic products. Depending on the HLB value, ECO BRIJ surfactants can be used to form either oil-in-water (O/W) emulsions or water-in-oil (W/O) emulsions, as well as to solubilize oils and improve wetting. Their performance as solubilizers is considered to be outstanding. ECO BRIJ fatty alcohol ethoxylates are widely used in many personal care applications as well as industrial cleaning, fiber finish, crop protection, water treatment, paints and coatings, lubricants, and many other industrial applications.

HLB Value: 12.4 - 12.4

100% bio-based. ECO Brij™ S10 is a co-emulsifier oil-in-water, typically combined with Arlatone 983. It is used in skin care, hair care, toiletries and decorative cosmetics. The ECO Brij™ Series of surfactants are polyoxyethylene vegetable-based fatty ethers derived from lauryl, cetyl, stearyl and oleyl alcohols. These materials are naturally derived, mild, and virtually odorless nonionic surfactants, and as a series, offer a diverse set of emulsifying characteristics allowing them to confer unique bodying, spreading and stabilizing properties to emulsions. Since the ECO Brij™ surfactants manifest synergistic behavior, they can achieve even greater effects when used together. The extraordinary synergism shown by ECO Brij™ blends is particularly evident in the case of difficult-to-formulate emulsions, such as clear gel microemulsions and alkali-based hair straighteners.Croda considers the RSPO Mass Balance system to be an important progressive step in supporting the palm oil physical supply chain and creating momentum towards segregated sustainable Palm Oil and Palm Kernel Oil material. To that end, sampling will be of the sustainable palm variant, SP ECO Brij™ L4.
