It is fantastic! IMHO it's milder than SLSA, it bubbles brilliantly and leaves your skin feeling smooth and conditioned. I originally got it from The Herbarie but now source it in the UK. I use it in bath creams, body washes and in a shower gel, usually along with Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate (a liquid surfactant also at The Herbarie).

Here is a response I recieved from a supplier about Sodium Coco Sulfate concerning bath bombs. I hope it helps if anyone was considering trying it in bath bombs.

Sodium Coco Sulfate is an excellent foamer - probably a better foamer


Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate. However, I don't know how well it would

work in

a bath bomb since we've not used it in that particular application. It


typically dispersed into water and then neutralized. Sodium Coco

Sulfate is

excellent when used to make shampoo, body wash or other liquid

It's available in small, thin white needles but they're easy to grind down and yes it does make an irritating powder that gets everywhere, so use masks, etc. It's well worth it though. I've used it in solid bubble bars as well and they're the best I've tried. I haven't tried them in bath bombs yet, so can't comment on those. IMHO, I think it really does make a difference to your skin.

However, it still may be irritating to some.

Edited to add: The usage rate is 1-15% but I've had products certified with 20-25% in them.
