Coconut Fatty Acid Diethnolamide - CDE 85
Cocamide DEA, or cocamide diethanolamine, is a diethanolamide made by reacting the mixture of fatty acids from coconut oils with diethanolamine. It is a viscous liquid and is used as a foaming agent in bath products like shampoos and hand soaps, and in cosmetics as an emulsifying agent.

Coconut Fatty Acid Diethnolamide has numerous field of application, mainly because of its special characteristics, following are examples where it can be used as quality – improving additives in formulation.
In the above preparation CDE is used between 1 - 5%, in relation to the final products. For special cases. CDE can also be used in larger amount.
In sealed original containers and kept at temperature not exceeding 50°C as with all DEA amides, if overheating does occur amide ester will be formed To reverse the reaction CDE should be stored at room temperature ,failure to do so may result in formulation product with decreased foam and low viscosity.
Coconut Fatty Acid Diethnolamide is most widely used in personal and home care products as a foaming and cleaning agent.
