TEGO Betain P 50 C

The cost-efficient, concentrated

Cocamidopropyl Betaine based on
RSPO certified palm kernel oil.

The new 38% active betaine provides superior thickening performance

which can deliver reduced formulation cost.

The easily processable secondary surfactant can be used in a wide range

of surfactant systems delivering excellent foam and improved mildness.

Nowadays, cosmetics producers and end consumers are increasingly looking for cost-effective
and mild cleansing products with excellent foaming and pleasing rheological properties. Addi-
tionally, there is a growing global demand for responsibly sourced feedstocks.

As a global leader in the secondary surfactant market Evonik launches TEGO Betain P 50 C, a
novel concentrated surfactant based on RSPO certified palm kernel oil.
The predominantly renewable feedstock and high product purity of the preservative-free
TEGO Betain P 50 C support a more environmentally conscious approach in the cosmetic

TEGO Betain P 50 C is suitable for a broad range of application formats in the cleansing care
market, including body washes, shampoos, liquid soaps, foam baths, oral care and soap bars.
