Sodium Lauryl Sarcosinate
It is an extremely effective and mild anionic surfactant whose surface activity, compatibility and substantivity characteristics give it a unique character as a wetting, foaming and conditioning agent, all in one. Since sodium sarcosinates are less alkaline than their corresponding fatty acid soap, they exhibit optimum performance under slightly acidic conditions—an unusual, but very valuable, attribute for an anionic surfactant.
