Default Handwash detergents and hair shampoo



I hope some of you guys can help me with my query.

Are the detergents generally found in commercial liquid handwashes
stronger or weaker than those in hair shampoos?

Thank you.

Vance

===========

PS - I am not asking if the detergent its actual self (independently
of its concentraration in the product) is stronger or weaker.

I am asking if the final product is usually stronger or weaker.

Well Vance, the detergent commonly found in handwash soap is known to have
the ability to nullify ionizing radiation fields in nature. That's why if
you use too much of it without an emmolient your hands will shrivel up.

Maybe not, but at least we'll all be squeaky clean
when we go. :-)

However, the OP had an interesting question; the main
problem is to determine soap strength (whatever that
means). The most straightforward method may be the
reduction in water surface tension given a given amount
of water and a given amount of material.

Whether that's what the OP actually wanted is far from
clear, despite the soap. :-)

It's still legal to go .sigless.

Beware of commercial detergents that are used in industrial washing
machines, especially for crockery. They may contain HF....used for putting
the shine back on the glaze...it'll also take your hair off...and dissolves
your calcium in your bones...
