Ethoxylated sorbitan ester is chemically a surfactant, which is used in the preparation of emulsion, creams, soaps, and ointments in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics industries. It can be defined as an emulsifier that binds various ingredients together in pharmaceutical and personal care products. Key properties of ethoxylated sorbitan esters include formulation flexibility and higher compatibility with materials. Technological innovations and rapid industrialization are major factors driving the global ethoxylated sorbitan ester market includes. Chemically, ethoxylated sorbitan esters contain 20 moles of ethylene oxide and various fatty acids and are also known as polysorbates. They provide wetting, stabilizing, dispersing and viscosity modifying properties in various personal care applications.
