Product information Sarcosinate SL30 - Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate


Sarcosinate SL30 is one of the mildest anionic surfactants used in personal care and baby care products. It's an amino-acid surfactant in 30% solution and its INCI name is Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate. It produces high foam and in combination with other surfactants it aids in reducing irritation and enhancing foamability. Sarcosinate SL30 has good compatibility with disinfectants and can be formulated in soaps, body washes and cleansers containing disinfectants. Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate in shampoo is another common application. It has a shelf life of 2 years and should be shipped and stored below 40°C.

Product Group Description

The consumer demand for greener, safer, and milder ingredients has changed many formulations in the last decades. In the ingredient group of surfactants, a clear shift away from products such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and SLES to sulfate free surfactants is taking place. This is based on the perception that ether sulfates are potentially toxic or carcinogenic; especially Sodium Lauryl Sulfate has a bad reputation. An interesting and growing, sulfate-free, and extremely mild surfactant family is the group of amino acid-based surfactants. Amino acids are used as polar head group for surfactants and can be combined with fatty acids to produce a wide variety of amino acid-based surfactants, including amphoteric surfactants, cationic surfactants, nonionic surfactant, however mainly anionic surfactants.

Relevant for many industries, amino acid surfactants have the perfect characteristics for use in personal care and cleaning applications. This group of anionic surfactants has good biodegradability and biocompatibility and is known for its outstanding mildness and foaming properties. Their good foaming properties are normally not impacted by alkaline environment and therefore can be used in high pH applications. They have good cleansing properties and give hair and skin a long-lasting soft feeling. As a co-surfactant amino acid-based surfactants can help to reduce the irritating effects of other surfactants. The outstanding mildness make it perfect ingredients for baby care, sensitive skin, and facial care products. Generally suitable for body and hair care rinse off and cleansing agent products. Rinsing off most amino acid-based surfactants is very fast and easy compared to other surfactant systems and will contribute to reducing water consumption. The following groups of amino acid-based surfactants are often used in personal care and cleaning applications:

Glutamates are based on the naturally occurring amino acid called L-glutamic acid. Most used INCI names in this group of glutamates are Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate (for example Glutamate DC100), Disodium Lauroyl Glutamate, Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate (eg. Glutamate SL100), Sodium Myristoyl Glutamate, Potassium Cocoyl Glutamate, and Potassium Myristoyl Glutamate.

Glycinates are from the amino acid glycine, which is a main component of coconut fatty acid and human skin collagen. Most used INCI names of products in this group are Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate, Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate, and Sodium Lauroyl Glycinate.

Sarcosinates are surfactants based on amino acid Sarcosine (N-Methyl Glycine). The most well-known product in cosmetics in this group is Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate. What is Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate? It has all the properties of amino acid derived anionic surfactants: biodegradable, hard and salt water tolerant, strong foam producer, extremely mild and reduces irritation due to other surfactants. Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate in skin care is used in cleansers for face, body and hands and formulated in many bath and shower products. Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate for hair is mainly used in shampoos and as hair conditioning agent.

Alaninates are surfactants derived from the amino acid Alanine. Alaninate SC30-5 has INCI name Sodium Cocoyl Alaninate and is based on L-alanine and coconut oil fatty acid natural ingredients.
