ROKAmid KAD is a nonionic surfactant called INCI: Cocamide DEA. It is produced on the basis of natural vegetable oils. It has the form of a clear or slightly turbid liquid from light yellow to yellow. ROKAmid KAD belongs to the most widespread co-surfactants and has a number of very interesting application properties.

ROKAmid KAD is widely used in the production of cosmetics, where it primarily acts as a rheology modifier - a thickening agent that improves consistency, thanks to the creation of so-called mixed micelles. Combined with anionic surfactants, it improves and stabilizes the foam quality.

ROKAmid KAD is very effective in low concentration. It has cleansing properties - it removes impurities from the skin and hair and at the same time has a greasing effect. The washing process deprives the skin of, among others, fatty substances, therefore re-oiling substances are necessary, i.e. ROKAmid KAD, which rebuild the lipid barrier, thus protecting the skin from external factors and damage. As a thickening agent, it is also great in the detergent industry, both for home and professional use, as well as in car chemicals.
