Hydrotope

Hydrotopes are small organic salt molecules that allow oils and other hydrophobic compounds to better mix with water . Since hydrotopes enhance the solubility of products, they also are considered surfactants. 

Examples of Hydrotope

  • Sodium naphthalenesulfonate (any salts that end in “sulfonate”)
  • Disodium laureth sulfosuccinate (any salts that in “sulfosuccinate”)
