Description: Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate is a mild amphoteric surfactant, much like cocamidopropyl betaine. The "ampho" part in the name indicates it's amphoteric, meaning it carries a different charge in different pH levels. Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate is a synthetic surfactant produced on the basis of fatty acids derived from coconut oil.
Description: Lauramide DEA is a mixture of ethanolamides of lauric acid. Lauramide DEA is a compound made from a saturated fatty acid called lauric acid and diethanolamine or DEA, an ingredient in some cosmetic products that functions as a wetting agent. Combinations of fatty acids and DEA like lauramide DEA are referred to as diethanolamides.
Description: Lauroamphoacetate and Sodium Trideceth Sulfate acts as a mild nonionic surfactant that possesses conditioning properties. When it is used in combination with other surfactants, it boasts and stabilizes foam as well as builds viscosity. This product is used in hair care and skin care products such as baby cleansing products as well as other personal care products where low skin irritation is important.
Description: PEG-150 Distearate is a polyethylene glycol diester of stearic acid. PEG-150 Distearate is a macromolecule nonionic surfactant that was developed in recent years. It has good thickening efficiency for shampoos and bath lotions as well as some conditioning effects in hair products.
Description: Lanolin is also called wool wax or wool grease. It is a yellow waxy substance secreted by the sebaceous glands of wool-bearing animals. Most lanolin used by humans comes from domestic sheep breeds that are raised specifically for their wool. PEG-75 Lanolin is also called Polyoxethylene 75 Lanolin.
Description: Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is a polyether compound with many applications from industrial manufacturing to medicine. PEG-8 Stearate is used in cosmetics and beauty products as a surfactant and emulsifying agent. PEG-8 Stearate low molecular weight means that it is minimally absorbed by the skin.
Description: Sodium Lauroamphoacetate is an amphoacetate used in moisturizers and other skin care products. Sodium Lauroamphoacetate is naturally derived from coconut oils and is used as a cleanser and counter-irritant.
Description: Although sodium olefin sulfonate is found in many synthetically created cosmetics and soaps, it naturally occurs in some products. Olefin sulfonate is a component of both coconut oil and petroleum and can be extracted from these products. Olefin sulfonate is a surfactant. Because the skin often has oil on its surface, sodium olefin sulfonate is often included in many soaps, cosmetic products and detergents to enable the other chemicals to be more effective.
Description: Sorbitan Sesquioleate is a mixture that usually is obtained by esterification of 2 moles of sorbitol and its mono and di-anhydrides per 3 moles of oleic acid. A suitable antioxidant may also be added. Sorbitan Sesquioleate is used a thickener and emulsifier.
Description: Triethanolamine Lauryl Sulfate which is also called TEA-Lauryl Sulfate is a triethanolamine salt of lauryl sulfuric acid. TEA Lauryl Sulfate is a viscous, yellow liquid that forms a gel at low temperatures. It is usually supplied at a concentration of 35-40 % in aqueous solution.
