What is Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA)?
SLSA is a gentle, natural surfactant that provides a rich, stable lather in your bath bombs, shampoos and other cosmetics.
SLSA is quite mild, and is a lot less irritating than SLS. It is a white powder that is relatively fine in grain size, think somewhere between our bicarbonate of soda and citric acid in size.
Features of SLSA
Made from Coconut and Palm oils, you can use SLSA in bath bombs, shampoo, bubble bars, and other cosmetic products that need bubbles and foam. Some of its other features include:
- It’s milder than SLS
- It is a white free flowing powder
- Acts as an emulsifier, dispersant and surfactant
- It’s derived from coconut and palm oil

Caution While Using SLSA
We recommend using a mask while working with SLSA as it can be irritating to work with in its pure form, but it is perfectly safe when incorporated into your recipe. We recommend 3%-10% as a good starting point for a usage rate
