    Based on my experience with both, I’d say that in terms of foam and sebum removal, CAPA Ox is better, while for coacervation, viscosity and silicone deposition, CAPB would be better. Nonetheless, you should check if the difference is relevant in your system, and if you can compromise some things to favor others.
