So, what is stearoamphoacetate?

Stearoamphoacetate is a mild surfactant that is commonly used as an ingredient in personal care products and cosmetics. This water-soluble compound is derived from stearic acid, a saturated fatty acid found in animal and vegetable fats. As an amphoacetate, it possesses both positive and negative charges, which allows it to act as a gentle cleansing agent that can effectively remove dirt, oil, and other impurities from the skin without causing irritation or dryness. With its ability to create a rich, creamy lather and improve the texture and feel of formulations, stearoamphoacetate is a valuable ingredient in many beauty and skincare products.
