H Care® CA-35 is a high-foaming amphoteric surfactant that provides effective detergency, wetting, and hydrotroping properties in various electrolyte systems. It produces high foam and dense lather. It is completely salt-free and offers the formulator the opportunity to react H Care® CA-35 with any acid or base of choice to prepare the corresponding salt. This avoids contamination of the product with unwanted inorganic salts. This product offers excellent chemical stability, solubility, and surface-active properties. The low irritation of H Care® CA-35, along with its high foaming and dense foam properties, make this product ideal for shampoos, bubble baths, and skin cleansers. It is compatible with high electrolyte solutions and is stable in strong acid and alkalis. Solutions of 10% CA-35 are stable in 25% NaOH and 10% H2SO4 as well.
