INCI Name: PEG-3 Glyceryl Cocoate

Personal Care model gg

Chemonic™ LI-3 is a water-dispersible nonionic surfactant derived from coconut oil, which was developed especially to replace amides in a variety of formulations.

Builds high, stable viscosities at low concentrations in alkyl sulfate and alkyl ether sulfate based formulas. Chemonic LI-3 works synergistically with anionic surfactants to build excellent foam stability and flash foaming characteristics.

Ideal secondary surfactant for shampoos, bath gels, liquid soaps and facial cleansers. It is a mild cleansing agent, viscosity builder and solubilizer. Chemonic LI-3 helps build viscosity and adds emolliency to personal care products. It is compatible with other non-ionic surfactants and most anionic and cationic surfactants.
