So, what is sodium lauroyl sarcosinate?

Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate is a mild surfactant commonly used in cosmetic and personal care products as well as in some food preparations. It is derived from natural sources such as coconut oil and sarcosine, an amino acid found in muscles and other tissues of living organisms. This ingredient helps to create a foaming effect and has a cleansing property that removes dirt and oils from the skin or hair. Sodium lauroyl sarcosinate is gentle enough for sensitive skin and has been shown to be non-irritating and non-sensitizing, making it a popular choice among manufacturers of beauty products.
