[Terminology] Krafft point and cloud point

Krafft point

Definition: the temperature solubility of ionic surfactant rapidly increasing.

Typically, to ionic surfactants, krafft point is present.

Cloud point

Definition: the temperature that solution of non-ionic surfactant appears cloudy and separates surfactant out.

Parts of non-ionic surfactants, such as: alkyl glycosides, do not have a cloud point.
