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.

INCI: Water, Potassium Cocoate, Glycerin

Great alternative to making my own
Personally, I love this product. I use it when I'm soaking my feet. It's an effective coconut-based cleanser, and it really does product a lot of bubbles. Making it myself is time consuming, so it's great to have it ready to go when I need it.

I'm astonished!
Really, as a soap maker, I'm very surprised at the description of this. Potassium cocoate IS LIQUID SOAP made from lye, water and coconut oil! With glycerin being the byproduct and the lye completely neutralized after it's all said and done. I'm very surprised at how this is described, as though it's a synthetic detergent, rather than real liquid soap. I get it that you're selling a base, but please at least be accurate in the description so that folks KNOW what they're buying. And, no, I would not use this as a baby wash. Coconut oil soap is too cleansing and will dry the skin, no matter what you try to add to it. So please, fix this description so it's actually accurate of what it truly is. Thank you.

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!
