Personal care products that offer mild cleansing help protect sensitive skin but usually do not show good foam performance. Plantapon® LGC Sorb retains the excellent mildness of the duo of "green" alkyl glucoside surfactants (Sodium Lauryl Glucose Carboxylate and Lauryl Glucoside) while improving important consumer-related attributes such as foam and sensory acceptance. The key to this improvement is introducing an anionic group (Sodium Lauryl) into the alkyl glucoside molecule, providing exceptional foaming power while retaining the beneficial properties of skin mildness and gentle cleansing capacity valued by consumers with sensitive skin.
The synergy of mildness and foaming makes this complex an outstanding primary surfactant for sulfate-free cleansing concepts. In addition, Plantapon® LGC Sorb is a liquid surfactant recommended for various personal care cleansing applications requiring mildness and sensory appeal, e.g., mild facial washes, specialty shampoos, and other sulfate-free formulations.
