Overview

Sodium lauroyl glutamate is an anionic surfactant, which means it acts as a highly effective cleansing agent.

Supplied as a nearly pure white powder or diluted into water, this ingredient is a mild cleansing agent based on the amino acid L-glutamic acid. Safe enough for face washes and skincare products designed for children, sodium lauroyl glutamate leaves a soft, silky skin feel.

This ingredient also acts as an antistatic agent, which serves to reduce or eliminate the buildup of static electricity on the surface of the skin.
