A biodegradable surfactant. Compared to Decyl Glucoside which is thin, coco symplex is viscous and similar to honey. These non ionic surfactants do not bear an electrical charge and are often used together with anionic surfactants such as bio-terge AS40 or Cocamidopropyl Betaine. . An advantage is that they do not interact with calcium and magnesium ions in hard water. Derived from plant sugars and fatty alcohols, it is very mild compared to traditional anionic surfactants.
1% to 2% fragrance/essential oil without the need of a solubilizer.
Unlike Sodium Laurel Sulphate which is synthetic based and has a very high skin irritation potential. The reason you find SLS in many commercial products is that it is inexpensive & foams up really well.
Shampoo and Body Wash: 30% - 45%
Facial Cleanser or Baby Wash: 15% - 25%
This is a surfactant, that is very mild and skin-friendly, derived from coconut oil and fruit sugar. In haircare products it smooths hair structure and improves manageability. Safe and Gentle enough for baby and mild cleansing products.
Provides good foaming and foam liquid stabilization with excellent wetting properties. No need to heat. Due to the viscous nature of this surfactant, mixing it with other liquid surfactants will require sufficient hand mixing to make it blend properly. Using a blender may cause increased foam.

I did a homemade shampoo with this and it was great! My hair was clean and soft, I approved!
The ph is quite high for hair products
