Excelent for use in powder/ solid product formulations such as syndet bars, foaming bath bombs etc.
Addition of SCI in liquid formulations is done by using a secondary surfactant as its solubuliser. One can use products such as (an amphoteric, secondary surfactant; it also makes the formulation more milder) for solublisation. Additionally Polysorbate esters, , and/or are all suitable choices for efficient solublisation.
Note to formulator: due to the limited solubility of Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate in cold water, the use of SCI in formulations makes the product appear opaque, but this can clear, especially in warm summer days. We recommend to use an additional pearliser if this opaque / pearl effect is important to the end produt appearance.
Adding the SCI to the water / secondary surfactant,whilst slowley heating (‹75°C) and stirring ( minimise foaming) aids its solubilisation.
Recommended usage: 3%-20%
