Cocamidopropylamine Oxide

Cola®Lux CAO-35 is a multi-functional amine oxide that provides good detergency, exceptionally high foaming, and viscosity control properties. When combined in the proper ratio with alkyl sulfates or alkyl ether sulfates, Cola®Lux CAO-35 can be used to develop clear, mild, low pH shampoos/cleansers with substantial conditioning properties. It is useful in a variety of personal care and household applications.

High Purity – does not contain detectable* amount of nitrosamine contaminant.
(* <10 ppb reporting limit of 3rd party analysis)

  • Cola®Lux CAO-35 is currently approved for FOOD-USE as surfactant not to exceed 15% by weight in a formulated product; only for use with glyphosate under 40 CFR 180-910, as an inert ingredient in pesticide formulations.
