Replacement for CAB30

Hi All,

I am looking for a replacement for cocamidopropyl betaine that is suitable for use in california without being affected by proposition 65.
Does anyone recommend a natural derived replacement.

I have tried a range of surfactants but having difficulty thickening the wash. Are there any naturally derived thickeners around that will make this easy?

    Have you tried any of the amphoacetate type surfactants?(e.g. Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, disodium cocoamphidiacetate, Sodium Lauroamphoacetate)

    What is the issue with the cocamidopropyl betaine? I am assuming an impurity has made it on the the Prop 65 list. Can you get a grade with the impurity removed?
  • Hey ozgirl

    It will be much easier for a grade with the impurity removed. Searching for it now but will try the amphoacetates.
