Sarcosinates mild surfactants

Effective foaming and lathering agents

Sarcosinates are powerful yet mild anionic surfactants produced from a natural fatty acid and the amino acid sarcosine. This family has attracted attention as a safer option owing to their biocompatibility and effective cleansing effects on skin and hair. 

Sarcosinates are convenient, easy to use, and highly water-soluble materials and do not salt out of solution in high electrolyte environments. They impart a silky skin feel and counteract the harshness of the alkyl sulfate.
