Shampoo is generally made by combining a surfactant, often sodium lauryl sulfate and/or sodium laureth sulfate with a co-surfactant, typically cocamidopropyl betaine. Other ingredients are used to ease the rinsing or to repair the damage of the hair. Many shampoos are pearlescent.
Because of the good compatibility with surfactants, celopre® grades are recommended to give shampoos the desired consistency and provide good stability, especially for products with pearlescent effects. Furthermore, Celopre® types act as a film former and thus support the active ingredients by improving their adhesion to the hair.
