DEA-Free Liquid Cocamide DIPA

Cola®Liquid DC-5 MB is a DEA-free liquid nonionic surfactant derived from triglyceride oil. Cola®Liquid DC-5 MB provides excellent viscosity building, foam enhancing, and foam stabilization properties. The product is liquid and very mild to eyes and skin. Cola®Liquid DC-5 MB can be used in any application where traditional alkanolamide surfactants have been used. Cola®Liquid DC-5 MB will also enhance skin feel and maintain foam levels over non-amide systems and other personal care formulations.

Cola®Liquid DC-5 MB offers 5% maximum free DIPA for compliance with EU Cosmetic Directive Annex III regulatory requirements.

Cola®Liquid DC-5 MB combines the best properties of Cocamide MEA and Cocamide DEA into one product. The use level for Cola®Liquid DC-5 MB is going to be typical of those for similar alcohol amide surfactants, generally in the range of 1% to 3% in personal care products.
