Methyl Ester Sulfonate (a.k.a. MES) is a group of anionic surfactants also known as alpha-sulfo fatty acid esters. MES are derived from renewable resources, such as natural fats and oils. As a surface-active agent, MES can reduce interfacial tension between water and oil; when placed in an oil-water mixture, this chemical arranges itself in such a way that the hydrophilic part of its molecules remains towards water while the lipophilic parts towards oil.
