Sodium cocoyl glutamate

Sodium cocoyl glutamate

Sodium (disodium) Cocoyl Glutamate is a conjugate of coconut oil fatty acids and glutamic acid present in the collagen. It is a mild anionic surfactant and detergent with excellent skin compatibility used in cleansing formulations based on mostly botanical ingredients.

Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate (DSCG) has been compared with a standard surfactant Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)  for a degreasing effect on the skin. Results were interesting, both detergents notably decreased the sebum levels, but in the case of SLES, the sebum level increased again after the application break. DSCG showed a prolonged effect in preventing reactive seborrhoea.

So, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate is an ideal botanical ingredient for face cleansing formulations that eliminate excess sebum and lessen conditions for the development of acne. Intensive cleansing care can feel good - thanks to the gentle clean-rinsing. It transforms skincare products into a new sensory experience: shower gels, liquid soaps, or facial cleansers for intensive cleansing that is exceptionally kind to the skin. Disodium cocoyl glutamate is also dermatologically safe and has exceptional biodegradability (ecologically safe). Simply the perfect finishing touch to any skincare formulation.
