Sucrose cocoate is a natural chemical ingredient sourced from coconuts, and is widely used in the commercial preparation of cosmetics, particularly skin cleansers and moisturisers.


Sucrose cocoate is a thick liquid that is pale yellow in colour. It is aptly named, as it is a sucrose ester derived from the fatty acids in coconut oil.


Sucrose cocoate is a hydrophilic emollient, which means that it absorbs water and can help to balance or maintain moisture levels. It is also has a thickening effect, and can increase the density of a foam substance.


Due to its emollient properties, sucrose cocoate is a popular ingredient in skin creams and moisturisers. Its thickening properties make it an ideal addition to both gel and foam skin cleansers.
