 texapon n70 | sodium lauryl ether sulfate SLES

texapon n70 | sodium lauryl ether sulfate SLES


Texapon is an anionic Surfactant, an essential substance in the manufacture of detergents, cosmetics and toothpastes, where it is characterized by high efficiency in the removal of dirt, oils and fats, in addition to its important role in the production of dense foam, and is considered to be a widespread and widespread effective substance due to its effectiveness and cheap price.


Texapon has several types, the most important of which are:

sodium lauryl sulfate SLS

And it's in powder form .White dissolved in water easily and this type is used in the manufacture of toothpastes


sodium lauryl ether sulfate SLES

Or it is called N70 and be in the form of a sticky gel and this type of sls is harder in water solubility and needs to be well stirred to melt, and is used in the manufacture of detergents such as liquid soap, shampoo and hand washing  liquid.


Lauryl ether magnesium sulfate

 this type is used in the manufacture of baby shampoo, as it is less sensitive to the eyes and does not cause tears and redness as a result of replacing the small-sized sodium ion with a large-sized magnesium ion.


The properties of texapon :

Texapon SLS has the general formula:

C12H25-SO4Na 

molecular weight 288.38 g/mol 

Density 1.05 g/Cm3


As for the SLES, the SLES have the general formula:

C12H25(OCH2CH2)n-OSO3Na

Here, we add to each ether group the value 144.05 g / mol on the molecular weight and we can find out the value of n from the Data Sheet.


What is the difference between SLS and SLES:

The two types are similar in their use in the manufacture of detergents, shampoos and skin care products, both of which are considered as Surfactant , allowing them to remove grease, fat and dirt .They differ from each other in terms of manufacturing by adding oxygen (ethoxylatel) to SLS, which leads to a change in sensitivity to the skin and eye.

They differ from each other in terms of shape, concentration and water solubility.


Ways to produce texapon :

SLES are produced in several ways:

1- Using ClSO3H with lauryl Ethoxylate with NaOH sodium hydroxide as raw materials where the manufacturing process goes through the process of sulfation and then obtain sodium salt by processing it with NaOH, the final product SLES.

2- Using olium with lauryl Ethoxylate with NaOH sodium hydroxide as raw materials where the process of manufacturing goes through the process of sulfation and then obtain sodium salt by processing it with NaOH, the final product SLES.

3- Using SO3 with lauryl aitoxylat with naoh sodium hydroxide as raw materials where the process of manufacturing goes through the process of sulfation and then obtain sodium salt by processing it with NaOH, the final product SLES


texapon  is produced according to The following chemical equations:

R(OC2H4)nOH  + SO R(OC2H4)nOSO3H

R(OC2H4)nOSO3H  +  NaOH R(OC2H4)nOSO3Na  +  H2O


Storage of texapon :

It is preferable to store texapon at a temperature of 10-30°C, in a dry and cold place and not exposed to sunlight and rain.


Dangers of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate:

- Texapon is not considered a carcinogen and is a safe substance to use but causes reds and cracks in the skin in case of continuous exposure and for a long time.- The eye should be washed with water immediately when in contact.
