  • Surfactants in Detergent
    Surfactants in Detergent
    • 2018-12-26

    Surfactants in Detergents A detergent is an effective cleaning product because it contains one or more surfactants. Because of their chemical makeup, the surfactants used in detergents can be engineered to perform well under a variety of conditions. Such surfactants are less sensitive than soap to the hardness minerals in water and most will not form a film. Detergent surfactants were developed in response to a shortage of animal and vegetable fats and oils during World War I and World War II. In addition, a substance that was resistant to hard water was needed to make cleaning more effective. At that time, petroleum was found to be a plentiful source for the manufacture of these surfactants. Today, detergent surfactants are made from a variety of petrochemicals (derived from petroleum) and/or oleochemicals (derived from fats and oils).   Petrochemicals and Oleochemicals Like the fatty acids used in soapmaking, both petroleum and fats and oils contain hydrocarbon chains that are repelled by water but attracted to oil and grease in soils. These hydrocarbon chain sources are used to make the water-hating end of the surfactant molecule. Other Chemicals Chemicals, such as sulfur trioxide, sulfuric acid and ethylene oxide, are used to produce the water-loving end of the surfactant molecule.   Alkalis As in soap making, an alkali is used to make detergent surfactants. Sodium and potassium hydroxide are the most common alkalis.   How Detergent Surfactants Are Made Anionic Surfactants The chemical reacts with hydrocarbons derived from petroleum or fats and oils to produce new acids similar to fatty acids. A second reaction adds an alkali to the new acids to produce one type of anionic surfactant molecule.   Nonionic Surfactants Nonionic surfactant molecules are produced by first converting the hydrocarbon to an alcohol and then reacting the fatty alcohol with ethylene oxide. These nonionic surfactants can be reacted further with sulfur-containing acids to form another type of anionic surfactant. How Soaps and Detergents Work   These types of energy interact and should be in proper balance. Let's look at how they work together. Let's assume we have oily, greasy soil on clothing. Water alone will not remove this soil. One important reason is that oil and grease present in soil repel the water molecules. Now let's add soap or detergent. The surfactant's water-hating end is repelled by water but attracted to the oil in the soil. At the same time, the water-loving end is attracted to the water molecules. These opposing forces loosen the soil and suspend it in the water. Warm or hot water helps dissolve grease and oil in soil. Washing machine agitation or hand rubbing helps pull the soil free.

  • California legislation requires cleaning product manufacturers to comply with the most stringent chemical disclosure requirements by 2021
    California legislation requires cleaning product manufacturers to comply with the most stringent chemical disclosure requirements by 2021
    • 2018-09-27

    California legislation requires cleaning product manufacturers to comply with the most stringent chemical disclosure requirements by 2021 California has recently passed legislation requiring manufacturers of various cleaning products to meet the most stringent chemical disclosure regulations in the United States by January 1, 2021, while online disclosure will be implemented by January 1, 2020. Experts believe that the new legislation will become the actual US national standard if it has not been rejected by the California referendum or successfully questioned in the court. Because manufacturers may find it more practical and cost-effective to develop labels that meet California standards and then use them on marketing products that are sold nationwide. The California Cleaner's Right to Know Act (SB 258) passed on October 15th as a law requiring manufacturers of designated cleaning products sold in the state to disclose information on chemical substances contained in products on product labels and product websites. “Designated Product” means cleaning products used primarily for commercial, domestic or institutional use, including air fresheners, automotive products, general cleaning products, and polishing or floor waxing products. Products not covered by this definition are: (1) food, drugs and cosmetics, including personal care products such as toothpaste, shampoo and hand soap; (2) specially manufactured and used in oil and gas production, steel production, heavy industry manufacturing, Industrial water treatment, industrial textile maintenance and processing other than industrial washing, food and beverage processing and packaging, and industrial products of other industrial production processes; (3) trial samples of designated products that are not packaged for individual sale, resale or retail, and A text indicating that the product cannot be sold or resold. From January 1, 2021, the cleaning materials must disclose the following information on the label in accordance with one of the following two options. Option A The product contains a list of deliberate additions to the ingredients that are on the list. List of various allergenic fragrances listed in Annex III of the Cosmetics Regulations of the European Union No. 1223/2009, according to EU Cleaner Regulation No. 648/2004, if these substances are contained in the product at 0.01% (100 ppm) or Above, it must be noted on the label. Manufacturers must combine all aromatic ingredients and other ingredients with allergenic fragrances, including those found in essential oils, to determine the level of various allergenic fragrances in a given product. Deliberately added ingredients that are known to be carcinogenic or reproductively toxic in California and listed on the designated list under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxicity Enforcement Act of 1986 are not required to be listed on the designated product label until January 2023 1st so far. Option B A list of all deliberate additions to the s...

  • Latin American Detergent Market is Expected to Reach $28.08 Billion by 2025
    Latin American Detergent Market is Expected to Reach $28.08 Billion by 2025
    • 2018-09-27

    Latin American Detergent Market is Expected to Reach $28.08 Billion by 2025 According to a report released by Grand View Research on the Latin American detergent market from 2018 to 2025, the demand for washing machines in developing countries in Latin America is rising, and the demand for washing powder in rural areas is increasing. The increase will drive the Latin American market to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5.9% in the future. By 2025, the total value of the Latin American detergent market is expected to reach $28.08 billion. The report shows that the competition in the laundry liquid market is increasingly fierce compared to washing powder. In developing economies, the ease of use and ease of dissolution of liquid detergents has led to a sharp rise in demand. For consumers, the use of liquid detergents to remove stains is more convenient than washing powder. The Latin American market has introduced various regulations to regulate the safe use of detergent raw materials. Encouraged by increased consumer demand for biodegradable and environmentally friendly detergents, manufacturers are investing heavily in research and development and launching innovative products to meet consumer demand. The home/dining detergent market is expected to achieve steady growth. As the population of Latin America increases, keeping home and business areas clean and healthy can effectively avoid the threat of disease and infectious diseases. These trends are likely to affect the market demand for detergent products. Industrial applications are expected to become more attractive, and Latin America's investment in this area is also increasing. The large daily flow of people in hospitals and commercial areas has led to a surge in demand for proper sanitization, which will drive an increase in the demand for floor cleaners in the field to protect people's overall safety. The report also released some important data. From 2018 to 2025, detergent product revenue is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5.8%. By 2025, the detergent industry revenue will reach 12.59 billion US dollars. The civil sector in 2017 is the main source of revenue in the detergent market. As people's awareness of the importance of family health continues to deepen, as of 2025, the civilian detergent market is expected to reach 60% of the total market share. With the entry or establishment of many global and small-scale enterprises, the competition in the Latin American detergent market will be more intense. Companies in Latin America typically use mergers and acquisitions to increase market share and increase product mix. In addition to multinational brands such as Procter & Gamble, the main participating companies also have local cleaning product manufacturers. Among them, the Colombian detergent market is expected to reach US$2.74 billion by 2025 with the emergence of multiple brand and store-owned brand detergent manufacturers.
