INCI Name: Sodium Coco-Sulfate
Product Code: 0668
CAS #: 97375-27-4
EINECS: 306-683-4
Brand: RTD™ Specialties

RTD Coco Sulfate is a solid, high active, anionic surfactant in fine noodle form. Its intended application is as the primary foamer in topical personal cleansing products. RTD Coco Sulfate is the sulfation product of Coconut Alcohols using an SO3 process, and is typically greater than 90% pure Sodium Coco-Sulfate.

Unlike Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Coco-Sulfate is manufactured without removal of all the higher molecular weight fatty acids that are integral to Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil. Cleansers made with RTD Coco Sulfate instead of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate will therefore typically have denser and creamier foam and may be translucent rather than clear.

Extensive handling of RTD Coco Sulfate is likely to generate dust, which may be irritating to the respiratory tract and induce coughing. Maintain adequate ventilation. Avoid dispersion of dust in air and prevent electrostatic charge build-up during transfer by using common bonding and grounding techniques as required.
