Safe Betaine Replacements

Cola®Teric Sultaines replace betaines for safe foam boosting and viscosity building and offer a variety of benefits compared to betaines:

  • Higher solids (50% - Sultaines vs 35% - Betaines) with no additives which can result in shipping and handling savings
  • Same or better viscosity response (by active) also enables lower usage rates of sultaines over betaines
  • Preservative-free without caustic pH allows the formulator greater flexibility in preservatives to add to the finished formulation
  • Lower irritation potential when compared to betaines
  • Improved compatibility of soap in hard water
  • Favored by Whole Foods for the Premium Body Care List
  • Lower EWG scores (Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine = 1 vs. Cocamidopropyl Betaine = up to 5)

Cola®Teric Sultaines are Greener

  • More natural raw materials are used in the manufacture of Cola®Teric cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine than other leading brands. For formulators interested in making their product more eco-friendly, Cola®Teric sultaines offer greener and more sustainable characteristics.
