Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA) is a mild surfactant, perfect for use in powdered bubble baths, shampoos, cleansing creams and bath bombs due to its excellent foam and viscosity building properties. It makes a great alternative to soap where sensitivity is a concern.
SLSA is naturally derived from palm and coconut oils and offers rich lather without the irritation potential of some other foam building surfactants. Due to its large molecular size it will not penetrate the skin, or the mucous membranes, so it will not cause the skin irritation of the sulfates, making it an excellent choice for soaks, facial cleansers and any other gentle cleansing systems.
