What is cocamidopropyl betaine?
Cocamidopropyl Betaine (CAPB) is a foaming agent which can be derived from a range of different oils.
Is cocamidopropyl betaine safe?
Cocamidopropyl Betaine is very well tolerated by the skin and is so mild that it is internationally recommended for use in foaming products designed for use by babies and infants. It is also suitable for those who may be prone to eczema and sensitive skin.
Studies into this ingredient have shown that CAPB, as used in shampoos, shower gels and the like, is of low irritancy and is unlikely to cause adverse reactions.
The Cocamidopropyl Betaine that we use has a maximum permitted level of <0.3% amidoamine, which is the level set by the Soil Association for this ingredient.
