Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate, like its 'sister' Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate, is another Glycine amino acid based surfactant. They have similar properties, only that Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate has better solubility, which makes it even easier to rinse off, although Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate is already easy to rinse off.

It's one of the mildest anionic surfactants by far, yet with excellent foaming and cleaning abilities. It is derived from the amino acid glycine and coconut fatty acids, which are all from natural renewable sources. Compared with other anionic surfactants, Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate removes less intercellular cement lipids when applied, which makes it skin barrier friendly. It produces a pleasant creamy-feeling lather during washing. Products formulated with Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate are super easy to rinse off. After washing, it can leave the skin with a clean, light, supple, and non-drying feel.

Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate is widely used as a primary or secondary anionic surfactant in facial cleansers, shaving creams, ultra-gentle shampoos, and baby bath bubble lotions, for sensitive or delicate skin. 

Yeser Chemicals partners with Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate producers through a Third-party Toll-manufacturing Agreement. We can supply top-quality Yeser® GCK30S Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate at a competitive price, with a capacity of 1,000 MT/ Month.
