ROKAmina K30K is classified as an amphoteric surfactants from the betaines group. The commercial product is a light yellow aqueous solution containing 29 to 32% of the active substance. ROKAmina K30K is applied as a component of cleaners used for removing dirt from skin and hair. It is a betaine with better thickening properties compared to ROKAmina K30.

It shows very good foaming properties in a wide range of pH values. Combined with anionic surfactants, it shows a positive, synergic increase of foam volume and improves the stability of preparations. It is good in modifying the rheology of preparations that contain anionic surfactants in the presence of electrolytes.
