INCI: Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate
Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate is an amino acid surfactant synthesised by acylation and neutralisation of lauric acid and glutamate from corn fermentation. It is natural, moisturising and mild. Besides its good surface properties, it hardly irritates the skin and does not cause allergies and toxicity to the skin.
SLG has excellent foaming performance over a wide pH range (pH 5.0-9.0), with foaming increasing as the pH decreases. The best and most stable results are achieved at a pH of 6.0-6.5, where it also perfectly matches the acid mantle and leaves a pleasant, soft and moist feeling during and after washing.
SLG is suitable for use in weakly acidic and non-sensitising formulations.
Compared to other surfactants, the cleaning power of glutamate-based surfactant is relatively weak. It is not suitable for making products with high foaming requirements, so SLG can be combined very well with other surfactants to enhance the cleaning power.
Due to its weak acidity, it is particularly suitable for baby and non-irritant product applications. Considering its self-thickening properties, it is recommended for the preparation of emulsions of opaque products and foam products with low viscosity.
SLG is suitable for various application forms: solid, liquid paste, powder, etc.
