General description

Blend of amphoteric and anionic surfactants for the cosmetic industry

Genagen 3SB is an optimized blend of surfactants to be used as premix for shampoo, bubble bath and shower gel production. Genagen 3SB combines the benefits of the single surfactants Coco Betaine, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate and Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate with convenient and easy handling.


Coco Betaine is a high performance viscosity builder in Ethersulfate (SLES) based formulations and can be used to viscosity ‚hard to thicken‘ systems (e.g. formu-lations comprising Acylglutamates, Sarcosinates, Sil-cones). Using Coco Betaine in personal care systems can reduce or eliminate the need for other commercial thickeners (e.g. Cocamide DEA).

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate contributes to mildness and a rich, creamy, “soap-like” lather. Instead of being supplied as a solid powder or chip, Genagen 3SB provides Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate in clear liquid form. No dusting issues are encountered, no heating is required, fast processing time enabled.

Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate is an excellent foam enhancer. Rich, dense foam is provided to the formulation. Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate stabilizes foam in presence of oil and thus is an ideal mild surfactant for facial cleanser (forehead exhibits high sebum content).

Genagen 3SB is a low viscous liquid, is easy to handle and can be processed cold. Genagen 3SB provides excellent viscosity building properties in Sodium Laureth Sulfate based formulations. Further, Genagen 3SB is a very mild surfactant blend which additionally provides superior foaming performance to cosmetic rinse-off formulations.

For the production of a well formulated rinse-off prouct, Genagen 3SB is typically combined with Genapol LRO liquid in a ratio 1 : 1 to 1 : 1.5. The addition of other surfactants is not required.

Further, the addition of viscosifier (e.g. NaCl, Co-camide MEA, PEG 150 Distearate) is generally not required.
