Amine Oxide Surfactant

Cola®Lux MO is an amine oxide-based zwitterionic surfactant with a C14 (tetradecyl) alkyl tail. It is used as a foam stabilizer and hair conditioning agent in shampoos and conditioners. Like other amine oxide-based surfactants, it is antimicrobial, being slightly more effective than lauryldimethylamine oxide against the common bacteria S. aureus and E. coli.
