Sodium cocoyl isethionate (SCI) is great for every skin or hair type as it’s a mild to gentle cleanser that leaves a conditioned skin feel. The dry type will enjoy the gentle cleansing and the creamy after feel. The oily type will enjoy these features as well. SCI is great for a cream cleanser – adding oils won’t mess with the lather too much – and body washes.
It offers rich, creamy, elegant foam; excellent, thick lather; good bubbles; and it’s great in hard water, rinsing off well, and leaving behind a conditioned skin feel. It doesn’t build up soap scum. It has a pH around 6, so you don’t need to alter it for hair or skin care products.
