Coconut oil aminopropyl betaine is a mild surfactant used in skin care products as a secondary cleanser and foam promoter. It cannot be used as the only cleanser because it is too gentle to be effective in cleaning adult skin and hair.

There are two ways to get coconut oil aminopropyl betaine. One is extracted from plants and the other is artificial. Both are available in cosmetics. The presence of impurities in the process of obtaining coconut oil aminopropyl betaine increases the risk to the skin, but it is still considered low risk for skin sensitivity.

Coconut oil aminopropyl betaine can be used as surfactant, foaming agent, tackifier, emulsifier and conditioner. When used as a surfactant mainly for bath products, it can be used to gently clean skin/hair by mixing water with oil and dirt. Most importantly, its PH range helps produce a mild germicidal effect, so it can be an effective and mild detergent for personal hygiene products.

Due to its well-known foaming and moisturizing abilities, as well as the fact that it is compatible with all types of surfactants (anions, non-ions and cations), coconut oil amide propyl betaine is used in various bath, body and hair products. Coconut oil amidopropyl betaine is found in shampoos, shower gels, hair dyes, detergents, deodorants, liquid hand sanitizers, bubble baths, dandruff treatment, exfoliant/scrub creams, acne treatment and hair conditioner. Coconut oil aminopropyl betaine also acts as an emulsifying and thickening agent in some skin care products. It reduces the potential irritation caused by other cleaning ingredients contained in the product. In addition, it produces a fatty layer in the hair, removes static electricity, and provides moisturization and manageability.
