Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI)


How to measure


Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI), is a sodium salt ester of

coconut fatty acid. Sodium Cocyl Isethionate is an

extremely gentle surfactant.

It has great potential in baby

cleansers, personal hygiene, and hair products. (Sodium

Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI)) is a very pure surfactant with a

active surfactant level of 85% which is rare in surfactants

because the usage rate is lower than blended surfactants

(Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI)) gives powerful and

luxurious foam while leaving a very nice silky feeling on the

skin. Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI)) does not dry the

skin, or hair, making it an excellent choice for the

formulation of all cleansers. One of the most popular

choices for shampoo / body bars due to its high

performance in soft or hard water.

If you have been using the powder version please

scrutinize your surfactant phase carefully to make sure

that your processing ensures proper, and even, heating of

the entire surfactant phase to avoid solubility issues. It is

also helpful to hit the surfactant phase with a stick

blender, or dispersion blade, before combining with water

phase but after you’ve finished heating.Be careful to mix it

gently while it’s heating or it will get too thick to work with.

add to the surfactant phase

the process with slow steady heat to dissolve into other

surfactants then mix surfactant phase with high shear (it is

best to process this way so that you process using high

shear only with the straight surfactants to avoid excess


mix into formulations preventing excessive foam
