Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) blends are frequently used in liquid hand soaps.

Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) is a type of non-sulfate anionic surfactant widely used today in shampoos and other bath products due to its skin mildness, cleaning and foaming characteristics and its ability to mix well with water to remove dirt and oils.  
Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) is the most commonly used variation, with 14-16 indicating the average carbon chain length.  
Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) is generally produced in industrial quantities via petroleum cracking.
Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) are a group of anionic surfactants, which are used as detergents.
Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) contain a - mostly linear, primary - alkyl R and a monovalent cation M, preferably sodium.
The most frequently used example of this group of substances is Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) (INCI: Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate).
Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) are produced by sulfonation of alpha-olefins, typically using sulfur trioxide. 

Subsequent alkaline hydrolysis gives a mixture of alkene sulfonates (60-65%) and hydroxyalkane sulfonates (35-40%). 
The commercially available Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) are mostly solutions with about 40% active ingredient content.
In addition to a longer hydrocarbon chain in which there must be at least one double bond (hence the name "olefin"), Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) has an anionic sulfonate headgroup with a sodium ion as a counterion. 
The sulfonate group is negative in aqueous solution, which is why the Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) are among the anionic surfactants. 

In contrast to most other surfactants in which the C12-alkyl chains have the highest surface activity, Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) shows maximal activity when using C14 and C16-olefins.
Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) is a mild anionic, high-foaming & well-emulsifying surfactant.
Made primarily from coconut oils. 
Stable at a wide pH range and can therefore be used in acidic environments. 
Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) is 40% active substances. 
Mild primary surfactant with excellent cleansing and degreasing properties (but non-drying on skin & mucous membranes). 
Good wetting effect, foam booster, slight viscosity enhancer. 
Easily compatible with other surfactants including non-ionic, amphoteric or anionic co-surfactants. 

Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) can be used for making sulfate-free cleansing products.
Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) is a non-sulfate anionic surfactant that is commonly used in shampoos and other bath products owing to its skin-friendly properties, cleansing and foaming properties, and ability to combine well with water to remove dirt and oils. 
Petroleum cracking is the most common method for producing Alpha-Olefin Sulfonates (AOS) in large quantities.
