Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate is another amino acid-based surfactant. It's considered one of the mildest anionic surfactants by far, yet with excellent foaming and cleaning abilities. It is derived from the amino acid glycine and coconut fatty acids, which are all from natural renewable sources. Glycine is the smallest amino acid, and it gives Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate a smaller and lighter charged hydrophilic head compared to all other anionic surfactants. This property makes it the least irritating surfactant. 

Compared with other anionic surfactants, Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate also removes less intercellular cement lipids when applied, which makes it skin barrier friendly. It produces a pleasant creamy-feeling lather during washing. Products formulated with Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate are generally easy to rinse off. After washing, it can leave the skin with a clean, light, supple, and non-drying feel.

Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate is widely used as a primary or secondary anionic surfactant in facial cleansers, shaving creams, ultra-gentle shampoos, and baby bath bubble lotions, for sensitive or delicate skin.
