Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/20/2018 -- Sodium cocosulfate is a synthetic detergent most commonly used in personal care products as a surfactant and dispersing agent. It is a widely used surfactant derived from coconut oil. Furthermore, sodium cocosulfate is used as a foaming agent in soaps and detergents. Sodium cocosulfate is an alternative to sodium lauryl sulfate; the basic difference between the two being that sodium cocosulfate does not foam as well as sodium lauryl sulfate. Sodium cocosulfate finds application in the manufacture of various hair care, skin care, and oral care products. It is manufactured by using a blend of fatty acids from coconut oil and reacting them with sulfuric acid, followed by sodium carbonate to create sodium cocosulfate. Due to the potential risk posed by sodium lauryl sulfate to the human body, the usage of sodium cocosulfate is expected to rise since it is less irritating. Sodium cocosulfate is widely used in personal care products as it is a comparatively better cleansing ingredient and leaves the skin moisturized and conditioned. In the past few years, personal care products have become a part of the consumers' daily routine. Personal care includes a range of products such as soaps, liquid soaps, anti-aging face creams, shampoos, moisturizing lotions, and sunscreen products. Growing usage of personal care products in day to day life is expected to drive the global sodium cocosulfate market in the next few years.
