Global Optical Brighteners Market: Overview
Optical brighteners are also known as fluorescent whitening agents or optical brightening agents. They are chemical compounds which absorb light in the ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum; with the help of fluorescence, they re-emit light in the blue region. Optical brighteners are added to improve the appearance of paper and fabric by the whitening effect. Optical brighteners are normally used in laundry detergents to enhance clothes appearance. They are also used in high brightness papers and cosmetics. Few modern eye and face powders contain optical brightener microspheres which help in brightening dark areas of the skin.
