BioROKAmina K40HC is an ecological amphoteric surfactant of a very high purity, from the betaine group. It is available as a light yellow water solution, in which the concentration of the active substance is about 40% (a higher concentration compared to the ROKAminas of the K30 series).
BioROKAmina K40HC is produced using a raw material called Greenline MCAA 80% UP Solution, i.e. very pure, 80% monochloroacetic acid produced on the base of the natural acetic acid obtained in the natural fermentation process. The use of Greenline MCAA 80% in the production of BIO ROKAmina K40HC increases the value of its natural origin index (in accordance with ISO 16128, manufacturer's declaration available on customer's request).
In addition, BioROKAmina K40HC is made from a base of palm kernel oil obtained from the seeds of the African oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.), also known as palm oil.
BioROKAmina K40HC is a surfactant that is safe for both people and the environment. Its raw material composition is a determinant of the high level of the natural origin index of this product. Therefore, this surfactant is especially recommended for use in cosmetic formulations, in particular in natural, vegan and hypoallergenic cosmetics, or washing preparations with a very gentle effect on the skin and hair.BioROKAmina K40HC is a safe and highly efficient cosmetic ingredient that can be safely used in Eco, Organic, Vegan, Paraben Free and GMO Free products.
The surfactant complies with the biodegradability criteria laid down in Regulation (EC) No. 648/2004 on detergents.
BioROKAmina K40HC is a surfactant unique in its composition, used as a component of natural and ecological cleansing cosmetics, designed to remove impurities from the surface of the hair and skin. The product is characterised by excellent foaming properties in a wide range of pH and water hardness levels. In combination with anionic surfactants (SLS, SLES), it shows a positive, synergistic increase in the foam volume and improves the stability of preparations. BioROKAmina K40HC is a very good rheology modifier in preparations containing anionic surfactants in the presence of electrolytes. Moreover, the product shows high stability in solutions with a high salinity content. These features have the effect of increasing the efficiency of the use of surfactants in finished cosmetic formulations.
BioROKAmina K40HC is a surfactant which can also successfully act as a hydrotrope, i.e. a substance that improves the clarity of cosmetic formulations. It is a product that works perfectly as a component of personal care products because it dramatically reduces irritating and sensitising properties in comparison to standard ingredients used in the cosmetics industry.
BioROKAmina K40HC perfectly smooths and softens the skin and hair, making them sleek and pleasant to the touch. An additional advantage of the product is the ability to mitigate the irritating effects of anionic surfactants contained in the formulation. Moreover, it has an antistatic effect – reducing the static charge of the hair.
In addition, BioROKAmina K40HC is used as a component of All Purpose Cleaning (APC) preparations, mainly in 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.
