Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate is an all natural surfactant and emulsifier derived from the lauric acid ester of lactyl lactate. This unique product offers formulators top skin moisturizing, good foaming, and leaves a smooth feel on application. It is the emulsifier, of choice for natural products.

It is especially suited for formulating all natural cleansing products since it is a great foamer and is SO gentle to the skin.

Lactylates penetrate deeper in to the dermis' dead layers of skin to add: * Excellent moisturizing * Enhanced delivery of the actives
