Mackam® LHS

A biodegradable high foaming surfactant

Mackam® LHS is a fatty alkyl sulfobetaine, which is useful for industrial, household and hair & body care formulations. Mackam® LHS is a biodegradable high foamer with excellent stability in both extreme acid and alkaline formulations. Being a permanently zwitterionic surfactant, Mackam® LHS is compatible with virtually all other surfactants and it can be solubilized at 2-3% in 30-40% caustic soda solution. Unlike similar amido-functional sultaines, Mackam® LHS is very stable in both acid and alkali and is not subject to degradation through hydrolysis.
