Why do we need hydrotopes in liquid detergents?

Sponsors

Hydrotropes assist in maintaining the pouring characteristics of liquid detergents by preventing gel formation or separation into layers in the bottle (Accord). Aside from liquid detergents, hydrotropes are also use in automatic dishwashing, high pressure degreaser, tile and grout cleaner, diswashing rinse, dishwashing liquid, wool and fabric cleaner and truck and trailer Cleaners.

One example is sodium xylene sulfonate (SXS).  SXS is an effective coupling/solubilizer/hydrotrope for water solutions of various surfactants and hydrophilic solvents. It promotes the compatibility of various ingredients present in a multi-component system.  Aside from SXS, short-chain aromatic sulfonates like cumenesulfonate, amphoteric or phosphate ester surfactant,some glycol ether sulfates, and urea are used as hydrotropes.  

Aside from liquid detergents, hydrotropes are also use in automatic dishwashing, high pressure degreaser, tile and grout cleaner, diswashing rinse, dishwashing liquid, wool and fabric cleaner and truck and trailer Cleaners
