So, what is ammonium myristyl sulfate?

Ammonium myristyl sulfate is a synthetic ingredient that is commonly used in the production of personal care products, such as shampoos, conditioners, and body washes. It is a type of sulfate surfactant that is derived from myristyl alcohol, which is a fatty alcohol that is found in coconut oil and palm kernel oil. Ammonium myristyl sulfate is an effective emulsifier and foaming agent, which helps to create a rich lather and provide a deep cleaning action. It is also known for its gentle nature, making it suitable for use in products that are designed for sensitive skin types.
