Additive for Detergent


Detergent includes powder detergent and liquid detergents. There are some components two types of detergents share in common, which are surfactants, scale inhibitors, chelating agents, optical brighteners, water softeners, enzymes, colorants, biocide, and anti-redeposition agents, all the additives original are China and are analog to brand manufacturers like BASF with same CAS and same content.

Surfactant for detergent

Surfactants are one of the key additives that make up a detergent and are classified into four groups below

  1. Anionic surfactants
  2. Cationic surfactants
  3. Non-ionic surfactants
  4. Amphoteric surfactants

Baoxu chemical offers a broad range of surfactants in detergents as table 1 below,

Scale inhibitor for detergent

Limescale Inhibitors are used in areas of hard water where limescale buildup can create a fur fouling in plumbing or electrical appliances such as kettles, boilers, washing machines, dishwashers and showers.

Chelating agents are used to surrounding unwanted metal ions found in cleaning solutions. Hepta sodium salt of Diethylene Triamine Penta (Methylene Phosphonic Acid) (DTPMP•Na7) and Tetrasodium etidronate(HEDP 4NA)

are the most commonly used chelating agent in detergent. Baoxu chemical offers chelating agents in detergent as table 2 below

Optical brightener for detergent

Optical brighteners are colorless to weakly colored organic compounds. When present on a substrate, optical brighteners absorb primarily invisible ultraviolet light in the 300-400 nanometer (nm) range and re-emit in the visible violet-to-blue fluorescent light to yield a brighter, fresher appearance. They are designed to brighten colors or mask yellowing in plastics, lacquers, paints, inks, detergents, and paper. Baoxu chemical offers optical brightener agents in detergent as table 3 below

Water softener for detergent

Sodium citrate is used to balance pH levels and as a water softener. It is also used in cosmetics such as make-up and lipstick, in baby products like wipes, in soaps, and, of course, in laundry detergents. Trisodium citrate is used as an alternative to trimer sodium phosphate in the production of detergents and liquid detergents that do not contain phosphorus. Baoxu chemical water softener in detergent as table 4 below

Enzyme for detergent

Enzymes are catalysts that increase the rate of chemical reactions occurring in a variety of biological processes including digestion and growth. In the detergent industry, commercial enzymes are used to provide a higher degree of stain removal, whiteness, fabric and color care, and overall cleaning performance.


Proteases, lipases, and amylases are the major class of detergent enzymes, each provides specific benefits for application in laundry and automatic dishwashing. Baoxu chemical water enzymes in detergent as table 5 below

Biocide for detergent

Detergents with a biocidal action include disinfectants, sanitizers, antimicrobials, antibacterials, and any detergents with biocidal activity. Detergents that contain biocidal active substances must comply with the Biocidal Products Regulation in addition to complying with the Detergent Regulation. Baoxu Chemical offers MBS and CIT/MIT biocide for detergent as table 7 below.
