Sodium Coco sulfate is an all natural solid highly anionic surfactant in needle form. Its intended use is as a primary foamer in topical personal cleansing products. It is made using an SO3 process the sulfation of coconut alcohols and is typically greater than 90% pure coco sulfate. Unlike SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) Sodium Coco sulfate is made without removing all of the higher molecular weight fatty acids that are integral to coconut oil which creates a denser foam. It is gentler than SLS and comparable to SLSA or SCI at a price point that is more affordable.
It is considered a mild surfactant and is used in liquid soaps, bubble bath, shampoo bars, shampoos, body wash, shaving products and bubble bars soaps.
A mask should be worn when handling coco sulfate as the fine dust can be irritating.
