What is α-Olefin Sulfonate?

Sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate, the chemical name usually refers to a range of alkyl sulfonates, specifically salts formed by sulfonation reaction of straight-chain or branched olefins from C14 (tetradecyl) to C16 (hexadecyl) with sodium ions. This type of compound belongs to a category of surfactants and has an amphiphilic structure, that is, a long hydrophobic carbon chain at one end and a hydrophilic sodium sulfonate group at the other end. They are widely used in the field of chemical raw materials and industrial applications, especially in detergents, cleaners and personal care products.

Chemical structure: In the molecular structure of sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate, the length of the hydrophobic part (carbon chain) is between 14 and 16 carbon atoms, which makes it moderately soluble in water, which can effectively reduce the surface tension of water and form a stable emulsified system at the interface between oil and water.

Physical properties: This type of compound is usually white or light yellow powder or granules, easily soluble in water, and forms a transparent or slightly turbid solution. It has good foaming and detergency, and is stable in a wide pH range.

α-Olefin Sulfonate Uses

1. Detergents and cleaning products
Household detergents: α-Olefin Sulfonate is often used as an active ingredient in household cleaning products such as washing powder, laundry detergent, and dishwashing detergent due to its good decontamination ability and foaming properties. It can effectively decompose grease and dirt, and keep clothes and dishes clean and hygienic.
Industrial cleaners: In the field of industrial cleaning, such as machinery, metal surface treatment, and vehicle cleaning, it is used as an efficient degreasing agent to quickly remove stubborn oil stains and dirt. At the same time, its good water solubility and emulsification ensure that the cleaning process is efficient and thorough.

2. Personal care products
Shampoo and shower gel: In the field of personal care, α-Olefin Sulfonate is the main cleaning ingredient that can gently remove grease and dirt from the scalp and body. At the same time, its hydrophilicity ensures that the product is easy to rinse and reduces residue, which is suitable for different types of skin and hair.
Hand soap and facial cleanser: In hand cleaning and facial care products, it provides the necessary cleaning power while maintaining the skin’s natural moisture balance to avoid overdrying.

3. Cosmetic Industry
Emulsifier and Stabilizer: In cosmetic formulas, α-Olefin Sulfonate can be used as an emulsifier to help stabilize the water-oil system and improve the texture and skin feel of the product. It can also be used as a thickener to adjust the viscosity of the product.

4. Industrial Additives
Textile Additives: In textile processing, it is used as a detergent and cleaning agent to help remove impurities on textiles and improve dyeing uniformity and color brightness.
Oil Extraction: As an additive for drilling fluid, it can reduce the surface tension of water and improve drilling efficiency. It also has certain corrosion inhibition and anti-scaling effects.

5. Agricultural Applications
Agricultural Chemical Additives: As an additive in pesticides and fertilizers, it can improve the dispersibility and adhesion of liquid medicines or fertilizers, and promote the absorption and utilization of active ingredients.

6. Water Treatment
Wastewater Treatment: In water treatment technology, α-Olefin Sulfonate can be used as a dispersant to help remove suspended solids and grease in water and improve purification efficiency.

α-Olefin Sulfonate Prominent Applications in Cosmetics

1. Mild Cleanser
In facial cleansers, shower gels, shampoos and other personal cleaning products, α-Olefin Sulfonate is the main surfactant that can effectively remove grease, dirt and sweat from the skin and hair. At the same time, due to its good mildness, it is suitable for all types of skin, including sensitive skin. Its molecular structure contains both a hydrophobic part (carbon chain) to capture grease and a hydrophilic part (sodium sulfonate group) to help dirt disperse in water, thereby achieving the purpose of cleaning.

2. Emulsification and stabilization
In some cosmetic formulas, α-Olefin Sulfonate can also be used as an auxiliary emulsifier to help aqueous and oily ingredients mix better and form a stable emulsified system, which is particularly important for making emulsions, creams and other products. It can improve the texture of the product, make the product more delicate and easy to apply, and help maintain the stability of the formula and extend the product life.

3. Foaming performance
α-Olefin Sulfonate can produce rich foam, which is particularly important in shampoo and shower gel, because rich foam can give users a good cleaning experience and also help to better disperse and remove dirt.

4. Adjust product viscosity
In some cases, α-Olefin Sulfonate can also be used as a thickener. By adjusting its concentration, the viscosity of the final product can be affected, thereby affecting the rheological properties of the product and achieving an ideal use experience.
