# Active sulfactan calculation

I still confuse how calculate active sulfactan

Witch one is the right?

For 1 kg formula.. use texapon np70 and use 100 gram of texapon
1. 100 x 70% = 70 - - - - > 70 /1000% = active sulfactan 7% or
2. 100x 0.27 (asm texapon is 27%) = active sulfactan 27%

Thanks

• @Eruio  you must ask your supplier if the SLES 27% active or 70% .
• Use this to calculate active matter. Agree with Fekher, you should confirm SLES concentration.

I look at the specification
Actual Matter (%) 70.
Inc name = SLS
--------------—
The one that make me confuse is
1. From www.humblebeeandme/surfactans
Said 29%
2. From www.itsallinmyhands.com
Said how to calculate asm
From the formula using sls is 29% =
wt x active - - - > if i decide use 100gr - - > 100gr x 0.29 = 29
3. But in one of blog in my country said to calculate the formula is
(Wt x active %) /1000% (1000gr) =70
-----------—------------------------
Lets we use same active number
From web = 100 x 0.29 = 29 asm
From blog = (100 x 29%) / 1000% = 2.9 total active surfactan

Which one the correct formula?

And i got jurnal formula in bangladesh
The use total surfactan 56gr /1000 gr
If we use callculation from
1. From Web they use 16.24% but if
2. From blog they use only 1.624% surfactan

@Eruio active surfactant=( % level of use in formulation * active concentration of  surfactant) / 100.
So if you use 10 % SLS with 70% concentration
surfactant active = (10 * 70) / 100 = (10 * 70 ) /  100 = 7%

• @Eruio you are welcome.
