Molecular formula: C38H74O4
Molecular weight: 594.99
CAS Number: 627-83-8; 91031-31-1

EGDS is used to improve the pearlescent effects and enhancing viscosity of liquid washing products. It also features excellent thickening, conditioning and anti-static electricity performance. It is mild and can be used to moisten skin and nourish hair.
