A surfactant composition useful for imparting durability and wettability to a substrate includes first and second surfactants in combination. The first surfactant includes a compound selected from ethoxylated hydrogenated fatty oils, monosaccharides, monosaccharide derivatives, polysaccharides, polysaccharide derivatives, and combinations thereof. The second surfactant includes an organosilicon compound. The surfactant composition can be applied as an aqueous emulsion to a substrate such as a nonwoven web, to provide enhanced wettability after repeated washing cycles.
