  • CAPB upper safe limit for leave on skin product

    Posted by abdullah on August 16, 2022 at 1:57 pm

    I have to use 0.5-1% Cocamidopropyl betaine active surfactant in a leave on product for skin but i dont know what is the upper safe limit or is it safe for leave on skin product.

    what percentage of CAPB is safe and allowed for leave on skin product?

    @Abdullah Just check closely the purity of your CAPB. CAPB has been found to be allergenic in some studies, mostly because of some organic impurities.

    what impurities should i look for?

    i am using it at 3% which is 0.9% active surfactant. currently my concern is that it is preserved with CMI MI.

    @Abdullah DMAPA and LAPDMA for instance…you could ask your supplier for technical info about it.
