Contact Dermatitis or skin irritation is a common problem that afflicts many and a typical cause can be hidden inside your skin care products.

Answering the call for a milder and more thoughtful alternative are the range of Amphoacetates which can serve as a mild and gentle surfactant in a large range of personal care applications. They demonstrate high foaming properties and perform as an effective conditioning agent that helps product glide smoothly on the skin. Amphoacetates show low irritation to the skin and eyes and are often favoured as a mild alternative to sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS).

These sulphate-free surfactants are often coconut derived with the most common types being:

• Sodium Cocoamphoacetate,
• Disodium Cocoamphoacetate,
• Sodium Lauroamphoacetate.

There are a vast range of products that can employ Amphoacetates including body wash, shampoo, face cleansers, liquid hand soap, shaving cream and baby products, as well as being used as a thickener in household detergents.
