So, what is sodium cocyl sarcosinate?

Sodium cocyl sarcosinate is a mild surfactant derived from fatty acids and sarcosine, a natural amino acid found in muscles and other tissues. This ingredient is often used in personal care products such as shampoos, body washes, and facial cleansers due to its ability to create a rich lather and effectively remove dirt and oil from the skin and hair without causing irritation. Sodium cocyl sarcosinate is also known for its ability to improve the texture and feel of products, leaving skin and hair feeling soft and smooth. Despite its effectiveness, this ingredient is considered safe for use in cosmetics and personal care products.
