It helps promote wetting and surface activity and is an effective additive to both cosmetic formulations and household products. This product is stable in most formulations when used up to 5% and is an excellent co-surfactant for use in hair-care shampoos and conditioners. In skin care products, it is an effective emollient and humectant.
