The use of optical brighteners in laundry detergents imparts such a high degree of brilliance to fabrics at such a low cost that there use has become overwhelmingly ubiquitous. These molecules absorb UV light and emit some of that energy as blue light, which tends to offset the natural dinging of fabrics.

3V offers the major cotton brighteners along with solutions for brightening wool, silk, nylon and other synthetic fibers. The 3V version of Optiblanc NL is the only version of that molecule to be presented as a fully isotropic liquid, making its formulation as easy as possible. Optiblanc ULTRA is the smart choice for formulators concerned about “brightener staining” that can occur during consumer pretreatment of stains. Optiblancs SPL-10, ATR-Liquid, and RGF 250 are all nonionic optical brighteners which can offer benefits in applications outside of laundry.
