SCMI Surfactant


SCMI is a unique anionic surfactant derived from natural and renewable resources.  It is sulfate-free and produces a dense, creamy lather with a soft conditioned after feel.

The easy to use flakes function as a primary or secondary surfactant in rinse-off formulation.  When used in combinations with amphoretic surfactants and betaines, SCMI formulas can be thickened with the addition of salt to build viscosity.  In addtion, a crystal clear product can be achieved with ease.
