Surfactants: The truth behind their toxicity, their ability to cause chemical resistance and their use in cleaning products.

Surfactants constitute the most important group of detergent components. They are wetting agents that lower the surface tension of a liquid, allowing easier spreading, and lower the interfacial tension between two liquids. The word surfactant derives from the contraction of the terms surface-active-agents and covers a group of molecules which are able to modify the interfacial properties of the liquids (aqueous or non-aqueous) in which they are present one.
