Amphoteric surfactants feature the intrinsic ability to change in charge from cationic via zwitterionic (net uncharged) to anionic going from low to high pH. Elementis Specialties produces two types of amphoteric compounds: alkyl iminopropionates and (amido)betaines..
Amphoteric surfactants function well in high electrolyte formulations and are compatible with all other classes of surfactants. They are very mild and have excellent dermatological properties, making them particularly suited for use in personal care and household cleaning products.
