AAK Lipex Shea Betaine™
Lipex Shea Betaine™ is a Shea Butter based amphoteric surfactant for mild rinse-off hair and body care formulations. Suitable for clear, translucent and opaque formulations.
When creating shampoos, conditioners, shower gels, liquid soaps and face cleansing products, our mild amphoteric and non-ionic surfactants help to reduce eye and skin irritation potential compared to other surfactants. Based on shea butter and mango oil, these gentle but effective surfactants are appropriate even for baby care products.
Our Lipex Shea Betaine™ has been shown to improve hair volume, softness and combing properties in both wet and dry hair compared to betaines from coconut. And our ethoxylated Lipex surfactants made with water-soluble shea or mango can also act as solubilizers of essential oils and perfumes.
