Cleansing and conditioning
Products with this ingredient

Sodium cocoamphoacetate is a surfactant that gently cleanses the skin and hair while making a luxurious foam. It is often found in haircare as it is also conditioning.



Sodium cocoamphoacetate is derived from the fatty acids of coconut oil. It is a surfactant, a compound with a hydrophobic tail and a hydrophilic head. This means it attracts oil and water, helping the different ingredients of a formula to blend, and sebum and impurities to be lifted from the skin and washed off with water. It is considered milder than sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) and is therefore a good alternative to those who want to avoid it. 

Not only cleansing, but sodium cocoamphoacetate is also appreciated for many other properties. As a foam stabiliser, it increases the surface tension of the liquid that surrounds individual bubbles, resulting in a rich foam that doesn't just disappear. It is also conditioning the hair and helps creams and shower gels to glide smoothly on the skin.
