Cocoamidopropyl Betaine (CAPB)

Chemical Name:
Cocoamidopropyl Betaine with Sodium Benzoate
  • Product Details & Information

    Cocoamidopropyl Betaine (CAPB) is often referred to as a “secondary surfactant” because it is used to enhance the effectiveness of primary surfactants like Lauryl Sulfate and Lauryl Ether Sulfate. CAPB reduces the skin irritation sometimes attributed to the primary surfactants, enhances the conditioning properties of hair products and produces a smooth skin feel. Formulas with CAPB produce more foam and thus clean better than those without it. Our CAPB is stabilized and preserved with the organic acid, Sodium Benzoate — a preservative used in food products and approved for use in cosmetics up to 1%. Read below for additional information on our CAPB with SB.
