Coconut oil aminopropyl betaine
(CAPB)can be extracted from coconut oil and dimethylaminopropylamine. CAPB is a surfactant. It can be added to personal care products or used in bath products such as shampoo and soap for washing hands. It's also an organic compound. And you can see from its name that the main part of its molecule, the lauric acid group, comes from coconut oil.

It can also be used as an antistatic agent in hair toners that do not irritate the skin or mucous membranes. It is also added to personal hygiene products as a preservative.
Lipophilic, lipophilic and hydrophilic properties are chemical properties of surfactants, so surfactants can remove dirt and oil from the skin. Surfactants can reduce the surface tension of water, making it easier to wet, thus removing oil and dirt from the skin. So it's also a detergent
Some surfactants are very irritant to the skin, but coconut oil aminopropyl betaine usually does not irritate the skin. So the coconut oil aminopropyl betaine is added to baby soap and shampoo.
