    So Impressive! The graphics are beautiful and helpful; they made this article much simpler and more fun to read. :] My favorite part is 3. Cationic. :D Love the pointy ears and the before and after static. One of my favorite posts (of to many to count) because of the extremely well-designed artwork and text layout.

    By Nonanionic you mean nonionic? Nonionics are widely found in cosmetics. It’s true that some can be harsh but theyre are some that also very gentle (same can be be said for all surfactant types)
    Whether just in a shampoo to solubilize the fragrance, the key ingredient in no more tears formulations or the emulsifiers in creams and lotions – Nonionic surfactants are everywhere!
