Our Creamy Coconut Surfactant took months of research - it has the smallest free fatty acid range on the market, meaning less crystallization in your formulas.
Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
Create ultra-creamy, dense foam with this coconut-based cleanser. Use a little in any liquid cleanser, or a lot in any solid bar to get gentle cleansing with a luxurious, silky after feel. This anionic surfactant is hard water tolerant and will not leave a soap film or residue.
This surfactant should be used in conjunction with Shea Butter Surfactant in a liquid cleanser. It has poor water solubility and will crystallize back out if used alone.
Although our Creamy Coconut Surfactant is supplied in flake form, this product is known to have dust that can be an inhalation hazard. When working with any format of Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, work in an area with adequate ventilation and wear a particle mask to avoid inhalation.
