Ceteareth-25 is a surfactant made from cetearyl alcohol, which can be derived from animals (not used by ecostore), synthetically produced, or made from plants oils such as coconut and palm. The '25' in the name refers to the number of ethylene oxide units in the molecule.

We use this ingredient in our Dishwasher Tablets as a solubilizing surfactant, which helps other ingredients to dissolve effectively and improve cleaning performance.
