Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate

Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate is mainly used in our Hair Care and Styling products where it acts as surfactant - emulsifying. It reduces the surface tension of the water component and hence helps to enable it to be mixed with an oil component and form a stable emulsion. The efficacy of emulsifier depends on their ability to reduce surface tension, to form complex films on the surface of emulsified droplets, and to create a repulsive barrier on emulsified droplets to prevent their coalescence.
