surfactant/cleansing

Ingredients that lower the surface tension of cosmetics and help the product to spread evenly and easily. They usually have a water-loving head part and an oil-loving tail part, so they tend to be important ingredients in cleansers, or anything that makes bubbles. Very often surfactants are also cleansing and emulsifying ingredients.
