Overview

Sodium stearoyl glutamate is a useful ingredient for both cleansing and emulsifying purposes. It is a powerful agent for washing away dirt and oils from the skin.

What is unusual about this ingredient is its amino acid-based chemistry, which makes it mild enough to use as an emulsifier as well. Sodium stearoyl glutamate can produce oil-in-water emulsions, such as lotions and lightweight creams.

It is able to be used at low concentrations and it still maintains efficacy, making it very gentle – even on sensitive skin types.
