Innospec Performance Chemicals Home Care and I&I makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

EMPIGEN® OD / MB is an aqueous solution of alkyl (C12-C18) dimethylamine oxide. The fatty alcohol from which the alkyl (C12-C18) dimethylamine is derived is sourced according to the Mass Balance rules set by the RSPO*. Amine oxides are extremely versatile co-surfactants. In detergents they help to create and stabilise copious foam, as well as improving emulsification and soil removal and the incorporation of an amine oxide into a shampoo can improve the conditioning characteristics. They are resistant to oxidation and are commonly used as solubilising agents and viscosity modifiers in household bleaches with both hypochlorite and peroxide. Their properties can be modified by adjusting the pH of the formulation.
