Sodium Lauryl Glucose Carboxylate

Sodium Lauryl Glucose Carboxylate is an environmentally friendly surfactant created by linking coconut oil and sugars derived from corn. It is used in our Nectar Foaming Cleanser as a foaming + conditioning agent.

Although it's a mouthful to say, sodium lauryl glucose carboxylate is actually one of the mildest surfactants on the market, and used in a number of baby-safe products. It is used in foaming products like shampoos, cleansers, and baby washes. The ingredient scores a 1 (no hazard) on the EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetic Database.

So does this have any relation to Sodium Lauryl Sulfate? NOPE! Although the first two words are the same, this just means that they are both derived from coconut oil. While SLS has been been found to severely irritate skin, Sodium Lauryl Glucose Carboxylate has been found to be a much safer alternative.
