DeWolf Chemical Introduced Triple Benefit Betaine

October 21, 2005

De Wolf Chemical launched a high-active product that provides the flexibility to use any preservative and to formulate very concentrated cleansing products. Higher activity and less water shipped can help lower formulation costs. Mackam 50-UL has an activity level 25% higher than traditional grades
of cocamidopropyl betaine making it hostile to microbial growth, thus eliminating the need for a preservative. It contains approximately 2% of a biodegradable chelate that imparts enhanced hostility to microbial growth, and makes it ideal for EDTA-free formulations. According to the company’s in-house foam studies, Mackam 50-UL produces higher initial foam and more stable foam than other available product in medium hardness water. The product contains a low level of free amidoamine, which means a milder, lower sensitizing product. Mackam 50-UL also has ultra low levels of free fatty acid.
