DISODIUM LAURIMINODIPROPIONATE TOCOPHERYL PHOSPHATES
INCI: Disodium lauriminodipropionate tocopheryl phosphate
What is Disodium lauriminodipropionate tocopheryl phosphate?
Disodium lauriminodipropinate tocopheryl phosphate is also known as DLTP is the disodium salt of a mixture of esters made from lauriminodipropionic acid and tocopherol phosphate. It is also known as amphoteric surfactant meaning it has both the acidic and basic group in its structure. It is particularly important because it can hold both acidic and basic groups tide together and exert its effects more efficiently. Also, Vitamin E or tocopherol derivative is an added benefit in this molecule and can serve multifold purposes.
