ROKAmina K40HC is a very high purity amphoteric surfactant from the betaine group. The commercial product is an aqueous solution with an active substance content of about 40% and a light yellow colour. This product is a more concentrated form of ROKAmina K30, which translates into a reduction in transport and storage costs.
ROKAmina K40HC is a component of cleaning products intended for removing impurities from the skin and hair surface. It has excellent foaming properties in a wide range of pH and water hardness. In combination with anionic surfactants (SLS, SLES, ABSNa) it shows a positive, synergistic increase in the volume of foam and improves the stability of the preparations.
It is a substance that modifies the rheology of preparations containing anionic surfactants in the presence of electrolytes. ROKAmina K40HC is stable in solutions with high salinity. Due to these properties, it contributes to reducing the consumption of surfactants in formulations. This product is characterized by the ability to soften and smooth the skin and hair. At the same time, it reduces the irritating effect of anionic surfactants. An additional advantage is the anti-static properties – the product reduces the static charge on the surface of hair.
ROKAmina K40HC can act as a hydrotrope, i.e. a substance that improves clarity of, for example, cosmetics. The use of Rokamina K40HC as an ingredient in personal hygiene products significantly reduces irritant and sensitizing properties as compared to standard substances used in the cosmetics industry.
In addition, ROKAmina K40HC is used as a component of All Purpose Cleaning (APC) preparations, mainly for household spray cleaners. This product is especially recommended for glass and glossy surfaces due to the lower tendency to leave streaks. This property is used on the surfaces of black or stainless steel appliances, metal or ceramic sinks, chrome fittings, polished stone countertops, glass panes or mirrors.
ROKAmina K40HC has the prestigious international ECOCERT mark, which is the most important and most recognized certificate of quality and environmental safety in Europe. In addition, high biodegradability makes ROKAmina K40HC safe for the natural environment. It can be safely used in products such as Eco, Organic, Vegan, Paraben Free, GMO Free.
The surfactant complies with the biodegradability criteria laid down in Regulation (EC) No. 648/2004 on detergents.
