Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate is a mild surfactant for foaming formulas, with the following properties : foaming effect, wide pH range stability, biodegradability, mild and non-drying for the skin, and a soft after feel.

SODIUM COCOYL ISETHIONATE

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is a foaming surfactant. Compared to classic Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is a mild, surfate-free, high-foaming, anionic and non-ethoxylated. It is consequently a good option to avoid SLES in cleansing formulas, but much more expensive.

SODIUM STEAROYL GLUTAMATE

Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate is a surfactant. It is sold by Ajinomoto under the tradename Amisoft HS11-P. Ajinomoto describes this ingredient as “an anionic surfactant produced from L-Glutamic acid (an amino acid) and plant-derived palm fatty acid. Extremely hypoallergenic and well suited as a emulsifier. The pH is similar to that of the skin, therefore, it is very mild to the skin. Natural and environmentally friendly.
