Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate is an amino acid-based anionic surfactant. It's a mild, safe, and green surfactant derived from glutamic acid (an amino acid from corn fermentation), lauric acid (a fatty acid derived from coconut oil), and sodium hydroxide. Like the other amino acid surfactants, Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate is an ideal ingredient trending in personal care products. It's non-irritant, non-allergic, non-comedogenic, and resistant to hard water. 

Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate is widely used as a primary or secondary anionic surfactant in toothpaste, facial cleansers, shaving creams, ultra-gentle shampoos, and baby bath bubble lotions. It has stable foaming and cleaning ability in a wide pH range. However, it has low degreasing power, which makes it not over-lift the needful oil on the skin, hence leaving the skin a moist and non-tight feeling.

Yeser Chemicals partners with Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate producers through a Third-party Toll-manufacturing Agreement. We can supply top-quality Yeser® LG30S Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate at a competitive price, with a capacity of 1,000 MT/ Month. 

Features & Benefits: 

  • Good compatibility and excellent synergistic interaction with other anionic surfactants.
  • Very mild, low-irritating, skin-friendly and readily biodegradable.
  • Can observably improve the softness and manageability of hair.
  • Can reduce the irritation of the anionic surfactant system and improve the foaming ability.

Stability/Shelf life:

Stable at a wide pH range, except in strong acid and alkali.

Pack in tight-closed containers(drums or tanks); Store in a dry, ventilated and cool place; Kept away from direct sun and water.

Under proper storage conditions, the shelf life of Yeser® LG30S is 12 months.

Recommended dosage:

The recommended dosage of Yeser® LG30S in hair and skin care products is 1.0%-55.0%.
