Crafter's Choice™ Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate Powder

SCI Powder, often called baby foam, is a specialty anionic powder surfactant made from all vegetable, renewable resources, primarily coconut. It is used to impart extra mildness, good after feel, and good foaming in many personal care and cleansing products. SCI powder is an excellent foamer in hard or soft water. Naturally derived and biodegradable. 

A top quality gentle surfactant commonly used in acne treatments, anti aging lotions, baby shampoo, bar soap, bath oils, exfoliating scrubs, shaving cream, shower gels, and facial cleaners. You'll find so many uses for this wonderful powder surfactant.

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is only slightly miscible in water. Some heat and blending are typically used and needed when formulating to fully incorporate and disperse this surfactant.

 Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is currently on order control due to higher demand and tightening supply. Lead times for drums are 4 to 8 weeks. We reserve the right to cancel or refuse orders.

 Existing customers will typically be served first.

Bubbly Foamy Bath Butter

    Great for shampoo bars, I don't give it 5 because shipping is expensive

    Love the powdered version

    Posted by Valerie on Jan 30th 2021

    The powder is great, it melts faster than the noodles and I prefer it in my shampoo bars and bath bombs. I do wish it came packaged in a zip style bag vrs a zip striped bag, but other than that no complaints. Just keep in mind you will need a container to transfer it into once it's opened. It's great stuff and I will be back for more.

    Great Replacement

    Posted by TealRoseSoap on Oct 8th 2020

    I used this as a replacement product for my bubble truffles. It took some finagling but I twerked my recipe and it's perfect to replace the sodium lauryl sulfoacetate!

    Great surfactant

    Posted by Erin on Sep 20th 2019

    The powdered version of SCI melts faster than the noodles, speeding up my process; and the resulting product has a great, silky lather and cleans gently and thoroughly.
