Cocodiethanolamide

Introduction

Diam OWL is a water-soluble product derived from fatty substance and alkanol amine. In neutral water solutions, it has non-ionic characteristics but pH of the solution changes its behaviour. It may be called an hydrotropic fatty substance because of its solubilizing nature and behaviour. it has outstanding solubility power and boosts viscosity of surfactant solutions. It stablizs foam and is a good emulsifier. Due to the above properties, it is used in personal care industry.

Application:-

Diam OWL has a powerful wetting, emulsifying, dispersing and detergent action. It is used to emulsify water insoluble pigments to form a fine dispersion. It has an excellent rust inhibitive action. It acts as very good thickening and jelling agent because of its property to form viscous solutions in water. It is used in cosmetic and shampoo formulations due to its emollient effect, and as an dyeing assistant in level dyeing, dye dispersion etc. same receipes based on Diam OWL are given below.
