Fatty acid esters of sucrose
Sugar esters are surface-active substances and can be used in a wide HLB range.
The pharmaceutical relevant grades (stearates, palmitates and laurates) are available in a range between HLB 3 and HLB 16.
The pharmaceutical sugar ester grades are from the so called Surfhope SE Pharma series. You can easily identify them by the letter D in front of the grade.
