Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate (SLMI) is a very mild sulphate-free surfactant that can be used individually or as a co-surfactant. In formulations it produces a dense creamy foam and cleans very gently. It can be rinsed out very well and leaves a pleasant skin feeling thanks to its slightly conditioning effect. Due to its very good water solubility, clear liquid formulations can be produced with the SLMI. SLMI is hydrolytically stable and can therefore be incorporated into formulations with a pH-value of 4.5 to 8.5.
Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate is easily biodegradable. SurfaLux meets the criteria for the Nordic Swan and EU Flower eco-labels.
Application: SLMI is dissolved in water at 50-60 °C. The other ingredients can then be added to the formulation during the cooling phase.
Application: Shower gel, shampoo, facial cleansing, bubble baths
