There is an increasing interest for the wide array of hygiene products within the food product’s safety policies. Alkaline and ammonium salts of β- alkyl (C12H25/C18H37) (7/3) polyethyleneoxy (n = 3-20) propionic acids (nonionic soaps), based on their fundamental colloidal properties of the adjustable hydrophilic/hydrophobic balance, ensure future favorable synergies (foaming/antifoaming/dispersion/micelle solubility, wetting/display, washing, emulsion, sequestering/coordination capacities), diminishing the consequences of water hardness for processing, emollient, antifungal competences etc. The main colloidal competences (surface tension, critical micellar concentration) within the homologue series of hydrocarbon and heterogeneous polyoxyethylene chains (n) were analyzed in this study.
