Dear Customer,

Due to the rising costs of administering small orders, we are instituting a policy for minimum orders of $100, in our efforts to keep costs to as low as possible and offer the best wholesale pricing in the industry.

For orders less than $100, a small order administration fee of $20 will apply. This policy will be effective February 3rd, 2014. We truly regret any inconvenience that this might cause.

Kind Regards,

Alex B. Thomas

I LOVE this natural surfactant! I was so excited to find this ingredient here at a great cost. It really is very gentle and to be honest you really don't need that much to get a good foaming result. I use this in my moisturizing shampoo and body wash and couldn't be happier. Please keep this ingredient in stock, I will be back for more!!!

I ordered this product for the purpose of making my own shampoo. I am still experimenting with my formula, but even if I'm not yet happy with the consistency or feel of my shampoo, the effects on my hair are amazing. Most natural shampoos are too drying to my hair - my experiments with this surfactant have not been drying at all, although long term use will be more illuminating.

I love this product! With all the other stuff on the market with sodium laurel sulfate, glycols, polysorbates etc.. WHY? Why would we use them when this is available? Its viscosity is (I would say medium) Not watery but not too thick. Using it in shower gel base, tiny bit in my surface cleaner, washing my hair with it tonight. Thanks ND!!! Great product.

Holy jeebus! LOVE this stuff! Did you know that lather was added to soap years ago simulator aesthetic reasons? People thought no lather meant it wasn't cleaning. Well, this gives both! Strait out of the bottle and not mixed with anything gives a very thick lather and leaves your skin silky soft. I now make the PERFECT shampoo bars now!

Bought this ingredient to be used in an all-natural bubble bath for kids & I have to admit that I'm in love. It does exactly what it should, clean like a soap & lather to produce tons of bubbles with little added in a tub. Thank you for this great product! I know my new bubble bath recipe will be a hit with all parents looking to avoid the laundry list of chemicals to expose their children too. I know, I do. Will purchase again!!

The coco glucoside is excellent and much better quality than what can be found in commercial end consumer products. I will use it, eventually, as an all-around solution (that is: wash and shampoo in one), and I will still have much higher quality products than anything to be bought as a finished product. Glad you are in business, ND !

I am so glad that NDA is carrying this. I bought some and will be making a shampoo and body wash with it. The price is better than other suppliers I checked out. Haven't tried it yet but with NDA's reputation I'm sure it will be amazing! Please carry other non sulfate surfactants!!

This surfactant is fantastic. I will replace the cocamidopropyl betaine that I was using with this. The surfactant is nice and thick and is so gentle to your skin! Great job in choosing this surfactant NDA!
