Mackam® CAB 818 is a very light colored, yet economic grade of Cocamidopropyl Betaine. It is based on a fully hydrogenated fatty source so it has no unsaturation and its color and odor are minimized. Mackam® CAB 818 provides excellent viscosity building and foam boosting to anionic based cleansers. In shampoo formulations, it contributes to hair "manageability." Mackam® CAB 818 is stable and efficacious over a broad pH range and is compatible with both anionic and cationic surfactants. It contributes to mildness and is biodegradable. A cost-effective betaine that does not contain any preservative.
