What is Potassium Lauroyl Sarcosinate?

  • Potassium Lauroyl Sarcosinate is an amino-acid based-anionic surfactant, moisturizing- and conditioning agent. It is a potassium N-lauroyl methyl glycinate which imparts mild, smooth and comfortable skin feeling as well as can form rich and stable cream foams. It adsorbs upon hair, lessens accumulation of static charge and improves combability of hair. Moreover, it can be absorbed easily in skin and is suitable to formulate into dermal cleaning agents. It is a non-irritant and biodegradable grade.
