INCI: Disodium Lauryl SulfosuccinateProduct Category: Surfactant
ColaMate LA-40 is a very light-coloured, mild sulfosuccinate surfactant derived from natural lauryl alcohol. Cola®Mate LA-40 is more than 45% vegetable-derived due to the vegetable origin of the lauryl alcohol used in the product. This surfactant is sulfate-free, ethoxylate-free, and 1,4-dioxane-free – making it ideal for natural-based, sulfate-free formulations.
This surfactant provides a very dense, voluminous foam when used to formulate personal cleansers, is extremely mild to the eyes, and useful in sensitive skin cleansers. Unlike other sulfosuccinates, it provides a good viscosity response when formulated with other anionics. Despite its high Krafft point, ColaMate LA-40 can be used to formulate clear products.
An unpreserved grade of this surfactant is available. This grade, ColaMate LA-40 UP, is predominately vegetable-derived with a Natural Origin Index of 0.82 in accordance with ISO 16128 guideline.
