• Coco betaine, cocoamidopropyl betaine

     CocoAmidopropyl Betaine

    Cocoamidopropyl Betaine is an amphoteric secondary surfactant. CAB is an extreemly well utilised surfactants in the personal care industry where  these betaines find use in formulating Shampoos, Shower Gel, Bubble Bath, Hand Wash, Liquid Soaps, Hair conditioner formulations and even used in colourants, etc. 

    This mild,  Coconut derived surfactant, is high foaming, and produces a good flash foam. Cocamidopropyl betaine can be combined with almost any other surfactant in cosmetic formulations.

  • Decyl Glucosides, APG

     Decyl Glucoside

    Decyl Glucoside in cosmetic skin care offers the following benefits

    • surfactant
    • good foaming power
    • compatible with all surfactant systems
    • tolerant of high electrolyte formulations ( eg. Aloe Vera)
    • compatible with a number of cationic conditioning agents
    • mild but effective cleansing
    • improves skin tolerance of the formulation
    • maintains skin balance without dryness

    Derived from sugar these surfactants are readily bio-degradable, extremely mild and perform well in hard water conditions together with a very low toxicity.

    Decyl glucoside exhibits all of the mildness traits of nonionics, with the foam of an anionic. It is this unique characteristic that enables it to be utilized as both a primary and co-surfactant in formulations. Several clinical skin irritancy tests show decyl glucoside to be non irritating, even  at high concentrations with an extended contact period of 24 hours.

    Many formulators with a natural focus  are now turning to decyl glucoside as their primary, and in some cases their only, surfactant. It is so mild that it doesn't require blending with any of the mildness additives.

    Polyglycose (decyl glucoside) is considered to be part of a new generation of surfactants. In Europe, which have one of the strictest cosmetic regulations in place under the EU Cosmetics Directive, the demand for this alkyl polyglucosides has increased enormously.

    Typical properties

    • amber viscous liquid
    • characteristic surfactant odour
    • water soluble
    • store away from direct cold, in tightly closed containers
    • solidifies below 15 degrees Celsius but becomes liquid again upon heating.

    Due to temperature fluctuations during shipping, if it has become solid simply place your bottle in a warm water bath to liquify.


    Storage: Store in cool and dry place. Keep away from direct strong light and heat



    • add to the oil or water phase    
    • mix into formulations whilst preventing excessive foam formation     
    • maintain pH of finished product between 6.0 and 8.0


    Good compatibility with other ingredients, and displays synergic effect with other surfactants, mild to skin, and reduces the irritation potential  of cosmetic formulation system

    Suggested percentage :2%to 40%



    Application in: shampoos (anti-dandruff, anti-seborrheic, conditioners, frequent use, etc...), shower gels, bubble baths, dermatological liquid soaps, cleansers, and shaving foams.


  • eB-Thix Liquid thickener

    eB-Thix, Liquid

    is a  plant derived high performance liquid thickener for aqueous surfactant systems.

    As an easier-to-use liquid, eB-Thix Liquid works with high efficiency in cold mix systems and provides formulators with the ability to create good thickening efficiency for many soap based-products that is economical, as well as rheologically appealing.

    eB-Thix requires no neutralization, does not form nitrosamine by-products, and often contributes to a ‘conditioned’ feel in rinse-off products. It should be ideally pre-heated to 50 °C before adding to the surfactant solution,  ie a cold system but if not possible allow the product to set up over time.  Best used at in a pH range between 5.0 and 9.0 our eB-Thix is an excellent addition to any of the following formulations,   :

     Shampoo's & Conditioners

    • Soaps & Cleansers
    • Body Washes & Shower Gels
    • Facial washes
    • Other liquid soaps

     In short it is recommended as a thickening agent in all detergent cleansing products,and is particularly useful for thickening cold mix formulations. It has been found to work successfully as a thickening agent in hard to thicken systems, as well as a number of DEA free surfactant blends


    Application Level

    Application levels : 1-8%  dependant upon the surfactant type and loading


    PEG-150 Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate (and) PEG-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides (and) Water
