Overview

Sodium cocoyl isethionate is an anionic surfactant that is derived from the fatty acid in coconut oil. This surfactant is a mild cleansing agent that is commonly used in skin cleansing products, and it is especially useful in solid bar cleansers, like syndet bars.

Sodium cocoyl isethionate is supplied as a fluffy white powder and is occasionally mixed with fatty acids, like stearic acid, to produce a white flake or pellet. This ingredient is useful for products that require sulfate-free and ethoxylate-free systems, which are also frequently labeled as natural.
