Cocamidopropyl Betaine, also known popularly as CocoBetaine, is an excellent natural derived surfactant for formulate your own bubble baths, shampoos, liquid hand soaps, cleansing creams and lotions, shower gels, pet shampoos, and more!
A top quality high foaming surfactant, cocamidopropyl betaine surfactant builds excellent viscosity with anionics in liquid formulations. Detergency and foaming characteristics are generally unaffected by hard water.
Derived from renewable, natural resources.
Mild, biodegradable and viscosity-building and foam boosting surfactant.The cocamidopropyl betaine gives outstanding foam, foam stabilization and viscosity building properties.
CocoBetaine (Cocamidopropyl Betaine) is classified as an amphoteric surfactant. (An amphoteric is unique in that the molecules possess both a positive and a negative charge on their hydrophilic end, giving them a net charge of zero.) Cocobetaine is therfore compatible with anionic, cationic, and nonionic surfactants. Using CocoBetaine (Cocamidopropyl Betaine) to these surfactants will help to improve the foam performance, reduce the irritation of anionic surfactants, increasing cleansing capability of non-ionic surfactants and bridge the gap and allow for the use of a combination of cationics and non-ionics for superior cleansing formulations.
Improves viscosity of cleansing systems
Improves cationic and non-ionic performance
May be used to allow the combination of various polarity type surfactants.
EPA DfE approved, and listed with CleanGredients.
Provides excellent wetting, and gives good lather and foam.
Compatible with anionic, cationic, and nonionic surfactants.
Cocamidopropyl betaine has many and varied uses.
