We carry a variety of different surfactants for your shampoo bar, soap bar and liquid soap formulations. These can all be used together or individually, depending on your formula and your desired foaming level. *As a note, these are called SCI noodles by the manufacturer but they are not in "noodle' shape. They are flakes. You can easily grind them up to make a powder but if you want the "noodle" shape for your products you will need to purchase the SCI Noodles.*
SCI Noodles are a highly active foaming agent that can be used in foaming bath salts, foaming bath bombs, shampoos, liquid soaps, dish soap powders, carpet cleaners, and powdered cleansers and more. SCI noodles are coconut derived, 1,4 Dioxane free, preservative free, highly active, excellent emulsification properties, high foaming, and low dusting. Adding SCI noodles to your soap bars/liquid soaps will help to decrease the soap film left by ordinary soaps. SCI noodles impart a creamy lather that gently cleans and leaves the skin with a soft, silky feel. This surfactant is 85% or higher in active level surfactants.
For liquid formulations add at 25°c-45°c water with moderate mixing to disperse and dissolve. If you add to too hot of water the noodles may form particles that take a while to dissolve so watch your water temperature.
Recommended levels in wash off products- 2-50%
Recommended levels in leave-on products- 0.5-1%
Can be used as is in dry products.
SCI noodles can be toxic if taken orally. For topical use only. Use normal safety precautions when adding to formulas (safety goggles, mask, gloves). Once blended into finished product safety precautions are not necessary.
SCI Noodles are sold in 1-pound, 5-pound and 50-pound sizes. For orders over 250-pounds please email us directly.
