Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, or SCI, is a powdered surfactant made from renewable coconut fatty acids that is fully biodegradable. Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is one of the gentlest surfactants on the market leading it to also being known as Baby Foam, as this surfactant is mild enough to be used in baby products and personal cleansers like eye makeup remover. SCI exhibits high foaming ability, allowing it to produce a stable and rich lather that will not dehydrate the skin, making it perfect for adding to water-free products as well as skin care, hair care, and bath products. This surfactant is moisturizing and conditioning, as well as possesses emulsifying properties that help water cling to dirt and oil on the skin so it can be easily washed away! Common addition to shampoo, bar soap, liquid soap, foaming bath butter, bath bombs, shower gel, personal hygiene products and more!
