Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate
What is Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate?
Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate is often used in cleaning products and body care products like bubble bath, soaps, detergents, hair shampoos, and shaving creams. This ingredient is a disodium of salt and ethoxylated lauryl alcohol that is bound to sulfosuccinic acid. It functions as a surfactant or cleansing agent as well as a foam booster for items like mousse and shaving cream. Surfactants help reduce the surface tension of water, which makes it easier to wash dirt and grime from the hair and skin. Although it may sound like it is a sulfate, it is not, and it's actually a commonly found chemical used to make a variety of green, natural formulas. It can replace harsh sulfates thanks to its non-irritating and effective properties. You will also see this ingredient listed in many shampoos that are formulated to foam, degrease, and emulsify. Disodium laureth sulfosuccinate can be gentle on the skin and hair. You'll get an effective cleanser for your hair, scalp, and skin without any uncomfortable effects.
