ROKAcet KO300GK is a non-ionic surfactant (INCI name: PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate), used mainly in cosmetic applications. ROKAcet KO300GK is a slightly modified surfactant, compared to the standard ROKAcet KO300G, in terms of physicochemical parameters.
The product is a derivative based on renewable vegetable raw materials such as polyoxyethylated fatty acid esters and glycerol. The content of the active substance exceeds 99%. The surfactant is in the form of a straw to light yellow liquid, with a low viscosity and freezing point about -10 ° C, which facilitates its handling in process conditions. ROKAcet KO300GK has limited solubility in water, forming cloudy solutions. For this reason, it is used in systems in combination with anionic and amphoteric surfactants. Such systems are then in the form of clear liquids.
ROKAcet KO300GK is used primarily as a conditioning agent and emollient in cleansing cosmetics, mainly in shampoos, gels for face and body washing, bath lotions, liquid soaps. The product reduces the drying effect of anionic surfactants, leaving the skin surface moisturized and covered with a protective layer. For this reason, it is distinguished by protective and conditioning effects on the skin and hair.
ROKAcet KO300GK gives cosmetics the ability to re-lubricate the surface of the skin. This is a very desirable feature, as the washing process removes, among others, fatty substances from the surface of the skin and hair. Therefore, emollients are used in the cleaning preparations to restore the lipid barrier of the skin.
In formulations with anionic surfactants (e.g. SLS, SLES) and amphoteric (cocobetaine, cocamidopropyl betaine), ROKAcet KO300GK shows synergy, also improving foaming and thickening properties. It is also characterized by washing and emulsifying properties. The product supports the action of other emulsifiers, which makes it a co-emulsifier supporting the emulsifier responsible for the production of oil-in-water (O / W) emulsions in balms and lotions.
ROKAcet KO300GK is completely biodegradable and meets the criteria of the cosmetics directive.
