DI-C12-15 alkyl Pareth-4 phosphate is chemically a mixture of different, synthetically produced di-esters (DI= acroynm for the twofold ester) of C12-15 aliphatic alcohols(alkanols) and a polyoxyethylene ether of synthetic fatty alcohols(Pareth). The C numbering "C n-nx" preceding the ester designation (alkyl fumarate) indicates the number or range of alkyl (carbon) chain lengths. In the di-ester "DI-C12-15 alkyl pareth-4 phosphate", the alkyl chain length consists of 12-15 C atoms. The di-ester acts as emulsifier in cosmetic products.
