The foundation of Kookaburra Wash is a blend of nonionic surfactants based on fatty alcohol polyglycolic ethers derived from vegetable sources. The surfactants are enhanced by a small addition of a dispersant (also derived from vegetable sources) with stabilizing and softening properties.
Conditioning is carried out using a combination of natural substances, Jojoba Bean oil and Coconut oil.
