INCI: Sodium cocoyl glutamate

What is Sodium cocoyl glutamate?

Sodium cocoyl glutamate is formed by reacting glutamic acid obtained from molasses, glucose, or wheat with caprylic acid obtained from coconut oil. It is a water-soluble waxy solid used as a mild surfactant in cosmetic and personal care products.

Use & Benefits:

Functions as a mild surfactant and cleansing agent: Sodium cocoyl glutamate works by lowering the surface tension between two product components, such as two liquids or a liquid and a solid.

Contains a hydrophilic and hydrophobic end: This enables it to draw dirt, oil, and other pollutants that have built up on the skin's surface, which can then be readily rinsed away with water.

Has unique cleansing and foaming properties: Sodium cocoyl glutamate is able to effectively clean the skin while also producing a rich lather.

Retains moisture and prevents skin from becoming dehydrated: This makes it an ideal ingredient for cosmetic and personal care products that are designed to hydrate the skin.

Can work at the pH of the skin as a mild surfactant: This makes it suitable for use in formulations of creams, lotions, gels, shampoos, facial cleansers, bath products, and baby care products.
