Sources/Uses

Permitted for use as an inert ingredient in non-food pesticide products; [EPA] Used as a surfactant; [Cognis MSDS] "Cocamide is a mixture of amides of the fatty acids obtained from coconut oil. As coconut oil contains about 50% of lauric acid, in formulas only the 12-carbon chains tend to be considered. Therefore the formula of cocamide can be written as CH3(CH2)10CONH2, though the number of carbon atoms in the chains varies (it is always even)." [Wikipedia]
