The turbidity of the product is attributable to a combination of its magnesium oxide content (max. 500 ppm magnesium) and the pH value at which it is supplied. This turbidity has no negative effects on the product properties and disappears if the pH value is adjusted to below 7. Plantacare® 2000 UP is a nonionic surfactant with excellent foaming capacity and good dermatological compatibility. Therefore it is suitable for use as a base surfactant or a co-surfactant in cosmetic surfactant cleansing preparations.
