Plantapon 611L UP
Our Plantapon 611 is the perfect base for making shampoos, body washes and more.
It is a high solids, alkanolamide free, very mild, high active surfactant concentrate containing Cognis patented Alkyl Glycoside technology. Plantapon 611 L is a synergistic combination of a high foaming anionic surfactant, a cocamidopropyl betaine, and lauryl glucoside designed to build maximum viscosity even at low active levels. Plantapon 611 L can be diluted to yield high foaming, non-alkanolamide containing shampoos, body washes and skin cleansers with excellent viscosity potentiation.
Plantapon 611 L can be used as the basis for a complete line of shampoos and skin cleansers by the addition of other functional ingredients (i.e. proteins and botanicals) to customize the final products. Plantapon 611 L can be diluted to 10-20% (w/w) with water, followed by addition of fragrance and preservatives, to form a range of high performance economical products. For example, at 14% by weight in water, this top quality, high solids concentrate yields a high viscosity liquid hand soap with excellent flash foam. At higher use levels of 20% to 25% premium quality shampoos with luxurious foaming properties are produced.
A top ChemConx Blend for easily making all kinds of high quality easily dilutable shampoos and body washes and more.

Safety Data Sheet
I did not like this at first!
All the formularies for this product never mentioned that you can't process this stuff cold. At least I can't, it never mixes properly and gets goopy. But add warm water and it mixes perfectly. Also, don't forget to check your pH. This is the Plantapon 611L-UP so the pH of my final shampoo was around 10 and I had to adjust it. Plantapon 611L is around 7. Confusing, I know. There IS a bit of a weird smell when you first mix it but dilution and fragrances take care of it. It's now my favorite blend to work with!
Great surfactant despite the smell
Bubbles absolutely amazing, but, you have to be careful of how much you use as it has a strong smell. (* if you are adding fragrance the smell is probably not an issue)
