SCI also known as Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, and baby foam, is a very gentle surfactant used for making bubble baths, as well as bath bombs and shampoo bars. Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is a surfactant that is incredibly mild and gentle and often used in baby products. Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is made from coconut fatty acids.

It imparts a conditioning feel to skin and hair. Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is highly active 85% purity.
