Our Products

  • Nonionic Surfactants 

    Nonionic surfactants, commonly found in laundry and dishwasher detergent, are widely supplied and used across the UK and worldwide. These surfactants can be used in industrial processes, as well as in cleaning products, and are less likely to cause skin irritation when used in cleaning, disinfectant and personal care products. The nonionic surfactants that we supply are based on a variety of natural and synthetic alcohols and oils, with a range ethoxylation to suit applications in emulsification detergency, wetting and dispersant applications. Both high and low foaming nonionic surfactant products are available for supply across the UK and worldwide. 

  • Anionic Surfactants 

    Anionic surfactants are the most widely used surfactants, found in nearly every cleaning product. Our anionic surfactants include a range of phosphates, including acid and hydrotrope phosphate esters. We can also provide anionic surfactants from sulphates and sulphonates, including the widely popular sodium laureth and sodium lauryl sulfates, which can be found in hair products, skin products, and almost all cleaning materials. Anionic surfactants can be made from oils as well as raw fats, and can be neutralised with sodium potassium or alkanolimines.  

  • Amphoteric Surfactants

    Amphoteric surfactants are becoming more popular in the UK due to their low irritation, and low toxicity qualities in cleaning products and detergents. This is due to their positive and negative charge, unlike the popular nonionic surfactant, which has no charge. With a varied range of applications, Anikem’s amphoteric surfactants can be supplied in both a high and low foaming capacity. Our amphoteric surfactants’ versatile properties provide stability in detergent formulations, and a mildness in toiletry products that makes them particularly useful in a variety of industries. 

  • Cationic Surfactants

    Anikem’s cationic surfactants are commonly supplied for fabric softeners, traffic film cleaners and disinfectants. With antimicrobial characteristics, these surfactants are ideal for cleaners and disinfectants for hard surfaces. We supply this versatile group of surfactants for use in various industries in the UK and worldwide. 

With years of experience supplying the surfactant industry, the experts at Anikem can offer advice and assistance in finding the most effective surfactant for a wide range of uses, in various industries. Our product range includes anionic, nonionic, cationic and amphoteric surfactants, but we also source and supply chelates, pine oils, terpenes, antifoams, and tall oil fatty acids.
