Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA) is a natural, fine, white biodegradable powder derived from coconuts. It’s mild enough for the most sensitive and dry skin types. Many people assume SLSA is a sulphate because of its name (Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate), however this is not the case. SLSA does not contain any sulphates, parabens, sodium chloride, gluten or drying alcohols.
HOW IT’S MADE?
Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate is made from the extraction of natural oils and fibres of the Coconut plant. Coconut oil is used similarly in our soap products, to give fluffy, long lasting and consistent bubbles naturally.
Don’t mistake SLSA with SLS
SLSA and SLS look and sound like similar ingredients however they are VERY different. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate known as SLS, is a harsh chemical that can damage hair as well as penetrate follicle and pore openings causing skin irritation and other health issues. SLSA powder is a much safer alternative for most skin types including sensitive skin. It removes oil and bacteria without irritating the skin too much. It is a much milder cleanser that dissolves much quicker with water and rinses off much faster.
WHY DO WE USE IT?
Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA) is an important ingredient for the construction of bath bombs. Its characteristics produces high volume, long lasting foam which is very mild and non-drying to the skin. Its use is for bubbles and makes wonderful solid bubble bath formulations. SLSA can remove dirt, oil, product build up and bacteria without causing skin irritation as it is a water loving and mild natural cleanser.
