Types of Castor Oil Ethoxylates:
There is ethoxylated castor oil, (ethylene oxide condensates of castor oil,) and ethoxylated hydrogenated castor oil, (ethylene oxide condensates of hydrogenated castor oil,) also known as: PEGn-HCO.
The number of moles of ethylene oxide can vary. Castor Oil Ethoxylates with a number of ethylene oxide moles above 25 per oil are used as stabilizers and emulsifiers, and Castor Oil Ethoxylates with a number of ethylene oxide moles less than 25 are used as water-in-oil emulsifiers for the preparation of creams, lotions and similar applications.
Ethoxylated hydrogenated castor oil is preferred over ethoxylated castor oil when higher oxidation stability, lighter color, less odor or higher melting point is required.
