Blending Science with Creativity & Nature

Globally, our team works diligently on sustainable solutions built around you, the formulation chemist, and we support these solutions with extensive testing and research to ensure your formulation’s success.

Innospec offers a rich portfolio of eco-friendly surfactants that are sulfate-free and 1,4 dioxane free, as well as concentrated and solid products that use less water. As a surfactant industry leader, we are committed to sustainability; we are the future of cleansing.   

Our comprehensive range of easy-to-use, mild surfactants and performance blends offers dense luxurious foams in:

  • Shampoos
  • Body and face washes
  • Bath foams
  • Beauty and syndet bars
  • Babycare

Our range includes:


Traditional cleansing agent used in liquid soap


100% naturally derived mild surfactant used in rinse-off applications


These unique, sulfate-free surfactants enable the creation of crystal clear liquid products that are exceptionally luxurious and gentle on the skin

Olefin Sulfonates

EO-free, anionic surfactant with hard water and electrolyte tolerance

Alkyl + Alkyl Ether Sulfates

EO-free primary anionic surfactants with hard water and electrolyte tolerance

Alkyl Amphoacetates

Mild, amphoteric co-surfactants used in cleansing products to help mitigate irritation from primary surfactants

Amine Oxides

Excellent low pH stability and compatibility with cationic surfactants and polymers


Mild amphoteric co-surfactants with excellent compatibility with anionic, non-ionic and cationic surfactants

Performance Concentrates

Concentrated surfactant blends optimized for use in various cleansing applications


Gentle yet effective cleansers that produce high foam at low levels and aid in building viscosity of surfactant systems


High flash-foaming surfactants which are stable across a wide pH range and ideal for transparent hair and skin cleansing applications


Mild, naturally derived surfactants that provide foam stability and are stable over a wide pH range

Alkyl Ether Carboxylates

Extremely mild and compatible with other surfactants as well as ideal as co-surfactants and coupling agents


Amino acid based surfactants that provide mild, effective cleansing


100% naturally derived very mild surfactants commonly used to for their emulsifying and conditioning properties, and to enhance foaming


Non-ionic co-surfactants used to emulsify, boost viscosity, and solubilize
