Cocamidopropyl betaine (betaine) is an amphoteric surfactant widely used in liquid hygiene products (gels, shampoos, dental hygiene products). It is obtained from coconut fatty acids (coconut oil) reacting with dimethylaminopropylamine and other subsequent reactions.
It can be combined with anionic, nonionic and cationic surfactants. Helps improve skin compatibility of ether sulfate-based preparations. Facilitates styling and improves hair feel. It has good foaming power even in hard water. In combination with ether sulfate, it improves the thickening and foam structure of the final formulations. It shows good alkaline and acid stability over a wide pH range. It is used to formulate hair shampoos, bath preparations, and special cleaning agents.

Properties and uses of coconut Cocamidopropyl Betaina:
Antistatic - reduces static electricity by neutralizing electrical charge on a surface
Cleaning agent - helps maintain a clean surface
Foam Sinergiste: Improves the quality of the foam produced by increasing one or more of the following properties: volume, texture and / or stability.
Hair conditioner: Leaves hair manageable, flexible, soft and shiny and / or gives volume, luminosity and shine.
Surfactant: Reduces the surface tension of cosmetics and contributes to the uniform distribution of the product during use.
Viscosity control agent: increases or decreases the viscosity of cosmetics.
It is one of the ingredients that is an exception in the COSMOS specifications: it is organically authorized.
Dosage: Topical route, usually 7-15% in combination with anionic surfactants.
Conservation: In well closed containers. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.
