Cocamidopropyl Betaine is an ester of betain (derived from sugar beets)
and coconut acid with a quaternary ammonium cation in its molecule. It
is used as a very skin compatible amphoteric surfactant. It is a
viscous pale yellow transparent liquid and is used as a surfactant in
bath products like shampoos and hand soaps, and in cosmetics as an
emulsifying agent and thickener, and to reduce irritation purely ionic
surfactants would cause. It also serves as an anti-static agent in hair
Cocamidopropyl betaine is a medium strength surfactant which most often
does not irritate skin or mucous membranes. It also has antiseptic
properties, making it suitable for personal sanitary products. It is
compatible with other cationic, anionic, and nonionic surfactants.
Cocamidopropyl betaine to a significant degree has replaced cocamide DEA.
Used in shampoos, bubble baths and liquid handsoaps. Provides good
foaming and foam liquid stabilization with excellent wetting properties.
