    Depends on manufacturing and refining process. Apart from that, about as (un-)likely.

    It’s a byproduct from the Ethoxylation process. So, unless the manufacturer specifically removes it, there will be some residual 1,4-Dioxane.

    Incidentally, over the last week I have been receiving emails projecting a shortage/price increase on ethoxylated compounds (many surfactants) due to plant shutdowns in Texas during their cold snap.
