There’s an ever-growing awareness over consumers of rinse-off products to buy the correct one for their skin. Babies, elders, people with sensitive epidermis... all of them need very mild formulations to avoid dryness, itchiness or even rashes on their skin. The mildness of amphoteric surfactants is well known but hydroxysultaines are especially mild to the eyes and skin.

BETADET® SHR is recommended as secondary surfactants for very mild and high foaming products, achieving higher foam volumes than alkyl betaines or alkyl amidopropyl betaines. These products are easier to thicken when combined with SLES, thus reducing the amount of electrolytes needed to obtain a desired viscosity compared to other amphoteric surfactants. Hydroxysultaines show excellent stability at extreme pH’s thus allowing their use in cosmetics formulations were alkali (i.e. depilatories) or acid media are neces- sary. Very stable to hard water, improving the behavior of some sensitive anionic surfactants under extreme conditions.
