Fatty Alcohol Ethoxylate

Fatty Alcohol Ethoxylates (FAE) are non-ionic environmentally friendly and “green” surfactants primarily used in detergents, personal care e.g. for shampoo, as well as for textile and leather processing.


Fatty Alcohol Ethoxylate is a clear liquid substance based on the components Fatty Alcohol (FA) from the oleochemical chain and Ethylene Oxide (EO) from the petrochemical chain. The focus of HELM is on natural based FA produced from palm kernel oil or coconut oil with different carbon chains and EO compositions. Due to the wide experience in the area of surfactants and the structured supply chain of HELM it is possible to offer a high quality product at competitive prices from different sources/ origins in different kind of packing.

Examples of applications

Fatty Alcohol Ethoxylates are used as hard surface cleaner, for sulphonation to Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphates (SLES), detergents, cleaners, dishwashing, personal care e.g. showergel and hairshampoo, cosmetics, leather and textile processing as well as in the area of paints and agriculture.
