DISODIUM COCOAMPHODIACETATE
Disodium cocoamphodiacetate is a mild amphoteric surfactant of light color, low viscosity, low irritation, high foamability and high thickening ability. It is widely used in mild shampoo, body wash, facial cleanser, hand soap, shaving products, as primary or secondary surfactant.

What is DISODIUM COCOAMPHODIACETATE used for?

Disodium cocoamphodiacetate works as a mild foaming agent, cleanser and skin/hair conditioner. As a foam booster, it increases a solution's foaming capacity by increasing the surface viscosity of the liquid which surrounds the individual bubbles in a foam. It cleans the skin/hair by enabling water to mix with oil & dirt particles and rinse them off the surface. It cleanses the skin/hair without stripping it of its natural oils and is thus incorporated into many "moisturizing" cosmetic cleaning products.
  • Skin care: It is used in a wide variety of skin care products such as facial cleanser, body wash, acne treatment, exfoliant/scrub, mascara and eye makeup remover
  • Hair care: It is used as a hair conditioning agent, as it helps improve the look and feel of dry & damaged hair by restoring it with body, suppleness and sheen. It is used in shampoo, baby shampoo, hair mask and conditioner
