INCI: Sodium laureth-13 carboxylate

What is Sodium laureth-13 carboxylate?

Sodium laureth-13 carboxylate is the sodium salt of carboxylic acid obtained from laureth-13. It is commercially used as a cleanser in detergents and other personal care products.

Use & Benefits:

Surfactant: Lowers the surface tension between two components of the product, such as two liquids or a liquid and a solid. Contains a hydrophilic and hydrophobic end and attracts dirt, oil, and other impurities accumulated on the surface of the skin, which can then be easily washed off with water.

Cleanser: Helps to remove dirt, oil, and impurities from the skin.

Emulsifying agent: Gives stability to the product by preventing separation of the components and enabling even distribution of the product components when used.

Foaming agent: Used in shampoos to create foam, helping to keep the scalp clean and enhance the growth of healthy hair.

Sodium laureth-13 carboxylate is used in a variety of cosmetic and personal care products, including shampoos, bath products, facial cleansers, and other skin and hair care products.
