Cocamide diethanolamine, or cocamide DEA, is a diethanolamide made by reacting the mixture of fatty acids from coconut oils with diethanolamine. It is derived from coconut fatty acids that boosts foam and increases viscosity in shampoos. It can also be used in soaps, bubble baths and other bath products. It is a viscous liquid and is used as a foaming agent in bath products like shampoos and hand soaps, and in cosmetics as an emulsifying agent.
CDEA has good wetting, cleaning, dispersing, resistance to hard water and antistatic performances. CDEA especially has perfect thickening, foaming, foam-stabilizing and derusting abilities. Compounded with other anionic surfactants, such as LES, its foaming ability will be obviously improved, and foam is more affluent, stable and long standing.
