Mild surfactant and foam stabiliser
Sodium cocoamphoacetate is a mild surfactant, foam stabiliser, that also conditions the hair. It is an organic compound derived from the fatty acids of vegetable oil, that helps to deeply cleanse the skin and hair.
Sodium cocoamphoacetate is appreciated for its mildness and ability to add slip to the formula, making the product glide smoothly on skin and hair. It is milder than sodium lauryl sulphate, so a great alternative to those who want to avoid SLS.
Sodium cocoamphoacetate is a foam stabilisers, meaning that it increases the surface tension of the liquid that surrounds individual bubbles, resulting in foam that doesn't just disappear!
As a surfactant, It improves the lather ability to bind water and oil together, to then be rinsed away. As a result, it helps the removal of oil based dirt and debris.
