Out of Stock until January 30th.Potassium Cocoate is the potassium salt of coconut fatty acid. It's an all natural liquid surfactant made from 100% whole coconut oil and potassium hydroxide. Because of the flash foaming properties of potassium cocoate this product is great for use in liquid soaps, shampoos, and scrubs. Not meant for use above 35% in recipe formulations. This product contains glycerin as a natural moisturizer. When used at less than 10% in formulation, potassium cocoate works well for baby shampoo and bodywash.
This surfactant can be easily diluted with botanical or distilled water alone. If you're feeling more adventurous you may also dilute the surfactant with water in combination with small amounts of fragrance, oils, and/or extracts. Simply combine and mix thoroughly.
Ingredients: Botanical Name: Aqua/Water/Eau, Potassium Cocoate, GlycerinCommon Name: Potassium Cocoate

Hi Steffanee! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. We've found it creates a scrub that is moisturizing and non-greasy, as seen in this Soap Queen TV Episode on How to Make Fresh Rain Sugar Scrub. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this issue!
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Julie! The ingredient listing of this product is correct. There is no lye present in the final product. The product has been analyzed and that is what is present. It is 100% saponified coconut oil, there is nothing else added to it. The reason it can't be used at 100% in your recipes is because coconut oil is more harsh than other oils. However, it does make a great ingredient at 30% or less in your products! I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!

Hi Marsha! Thanks for taking the time to leave a response. You're right, Potassium Cocoate is made with Coconut Oil and Potassium Hydroxide! In the description, we say it's a natural liquid surfactant, not a synthetic detergent. Also, we recommend using this product at 10% or less for baby products. I will be emailing you personally to discuss this!

Several months ago, I received a lovely email from Patti Flynn. Patti participated in the “Crazy Sexy Vegan Cleanse,” that I coordinated in 2012, which involved no meat, sugar, dairy, gluten, alcohol or coffee. During this cleanse, Patti discovered lacto-fermentation of vegetables. This discovery soon developed into a hobby, which has now turned into a […]
