Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate Market – Snapshot

Sodium cocoyl isethionate is widely used as a versatile and mild primary surfactant that provides excellent and stable lather in liquid and solid formulations. It is a biodegradable material obtained from fatty acid containing oils such as coconut oil. Various forms such as needles, powders, and granules of sodium cocoyl isethionate are available in the market. These have excellent surfactant properties and are extensively employed in hair care and skin care applications. Sodium cocoyl isethionate is widely used in synthetic detergent (syndet) bar formulations for commercial purposes. It is being increasingly employed in other products such as combo bars, foaming face washes, and body washes since the last few years. Sodium cocoyl isethionate has been used for decades in mild, high-foaming personal cleansing products, wherein it provides gentle cleansing and soft skin after-feel. Rise in production capacity of sulfate-free surfactants due to the increase in demand for these surfactants in beauty and personal care products is driving the sodium cocoyl isethionate market, as sodium cocoyl isethionate is a sulfate-free surfactant. Sodium cocoyl isethionate is a primary surfactant in many leading wash products owing to its low cost and easy availability.
