Cola®Teric CAHS is a biodegradable amphoteric surfactant suitable for all types of foaming cleansers. This product lowers overall irritation when used in formulation with other commonly used primary surfactants. It is an ideal replacement for amphoacetate chemistry, offering higher biorenewable content, improved compatibility with hard water, and higher purity. Cola®Teric CAHS is especially well suited for gentle personal care products.
