Dimethylaminopropylamine (DMAPA) is a diamine that can be used in the preparation of some surfactants, including cocamidopropyl betaine which is an ingredient in many personal care products such as soaps, shampoos and cosmetics. DMAPA-derivatives are appropriate for shampoos as they do not sting the eyes and also make fine-bubble foams.
