Amphoteric surfactants

Amphoteric surfactants

Amphoteric surfactants are surfactants such as betaines, amine oxides or amphoacetates, which contain both a negatively and positively charged functional group, and are therefore also known as zwitterionic surfactants.


Amphoteric surfactants are used as a formulation component in the detergent and cleaning agent industry, and in cosmetic formulations. In construction, these groups of substances are mainly used as a wetting agent as well as air-entraining agent.
