  • Patent number: 6384008
    Abstract: Non-aqueous, particulate-containing heavy duty liquid laundry detergent compositions that are in the form of a stable suspension of particulate material, essentially including from about 0.1% to about 10%, by weight of the detergent composition of an ethoxylated quaternized amine clay material. These compositions preferably include a peroxygen bleaching agent and an organic detergent builder, dispersed in a liquid phase preferably structured with a surfactant. Such compositions provide especially desirable cleaning and bleaching of fabrics laundered therewith and also exhibit especially desirable aesthetics.

  • Patent number: 6274539
    Abstract: Disclosed are thickened light-duty or gel dishwashing detergent compositions that are especially useful for the manual washing of heavily soiled dishware. Such compositions essentially contain an alkyl ether sulfate-based anionic surfactant, a polyhydroxy fatty acid amide-based nonionic surfactant component, a sud booster which is preferably an amine oxide, an aqueous liquid carrier, a pH control agent such as potassium carbonate to provide a relatively alkaline product, and an acrylic copolymer thickener such as Acusol™ 820.

  • Patent number: 6174849
    Abstract: A water-free surfactant composition is presented having (a) a fatty alcohol sulfate corresponding to the formula R1O—SO3X where R1 is a linear alkyl chain containing 16 or 18 carbon atoms and X is an alkali metal, alkaline earth metal, ammonium, alkylammonium, alkanolammonium or glucammonium and (b) an alcohol sulfate corresponding to the formula R2O—SO3X where R2 is an alkyl chain containing 12 to 15 carbon atoms consisting of a minimum 20 percent by weight branched alkyl chains and a maximum 80 percent by weight unbranched alkyl chains, and X is an alkali metal or alkaline earth metal, ammonium, alkylammonium, alkanolammonium or glucammonium. The surfactant composition has a reduced potential for irritation and good flowability and solubility in cold water. The surfactant composition is useful in laundry detergents, dishwashing detergents and other cleaners.
