Coconut oil potassium soap / Potassium Cocoate

Potassium Cocoate is a soap which can be used as a base for "natural" type shampoos, hand soaps and other personal care products. It's an all natural liquid surfactant made from 100% whole coconut oil and potassium hydroxide resulting in a liquid soap. Because of the great flash foaming properties of potassium cocoate this product is an excellent primary or secondary surfactant for use in liquid soaps, shampoos, and scrubs. Not meant for use above 35% in  formulations.

Our product contains glycerine derived from the coconut oil which acts as a natural moisturiser. When used at less than 10% in the formulation, potassium cocoate works well for baby shampoo and body wash.

This surfactant can be easily diluted with botanical or distilled water alone. If you're feeling more adventurous you may also add our SLSA or  to obtain a finer foam structure and you can dilute the subsequent surfactant mix with water in combination with small amounts of fragrance, oils, and/or herbal extracts and essential oils. Simply combine and mix thoroughly.
