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.
