Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, commonly called SMCT for short, is a very mild, non-toxic, high-safety anionic surfactant for personal cleaning products. It is an amino acid based surfactant with excellent water solubility, hard water resistance, and good effectiveness in a wide pH range. Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate has similar cleaning and foaming abilities to Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate(SLES), but is much low irritating and safer to the skin and eyes.

Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate has been a trending surfactant choice in recent years to make sulfate-free hair shampoos, body lotions, and facial cleaning products as well. Its mildness makes it one of the top-listed ingredients for delicate baby care products. It's also completely and readily biodegradable

Yeser Chemicals partners with Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate producers through a Third-party Toll-manufacturing Agreement. We can supply top-quality Yeser® SMCT35S Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate at a competitive price, with a capacity of 1,000 MT/ Month.
