Benefits of Coconut Oil

Can coconut oil be used as a foaming agent for making bubble bath?


ANSWER:

There are many benefits of coconut oil! I would think you could use it, BUT you might consider using sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, (SLSA), instead. This is a versatile product used in powdered bubble baths, cream paste shampoos and cleansing creams due to its excellent foam and viscosity response. It's an excellent soap replacement when sensitivity is present. It's derived from coconut and palm oils and a safe, skin friendly cleanser, that offers rich lather, without the irritation potential of some of the other good foamers. Since the molecular size of this surfactant is large, it does not penetrate the skin, or the mucous membranes, so it doesn't cause skin irritation. It's an excellent choice for soaks, facial cleansers and any other, gentle, cleansing systems.
