Polyoxyethylene 20 sorbitol

In formulation of an electrical conductive paste, which is used to stick some electrodes on patient’s skin to get and record electrophysiological signals, there is something called polyoxyethylene 20 sorbitol. what is it? I know polyoxyethylene 20 sorbitan, polyoxyethylene sorbitol and sorbitol, but what is polyoxyethylene 20 sorbitol? I'd appreciate it if you let me know. Other ingredients are: brij 58, glycerin, propylene glycol,..

    It's just one of many names for Tween 20 or with INCI name Polysorbate 20, Polyoxyethylene 20 Cetyl Ether aka Brij 58 has the INCI name Ceteth-20, and Gelwhite is Bentonite. They pretty much ignore INCI names and mix up nomenclatures... sounds like a very reliable product *cough-cough*
    PS Googling that would have taken you less time than taking a picture and typing your Q here ;) .
