Crafter's Choice™ Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate

Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate is a top performing surfactant that has many advantages when formulating. It is easy to use, very mild , highly water soluble and used  in a wide pH range.

The disodium laureth sulfosuccinate is a top  choice for making any number of products where a natural focus is desired. Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, also known as DLS, or DLS mild,  is the perfect choice for making non irritating natural products - from ultra mild shampoos, products for sensitive skin, baby products, facial products and so many other gentle and natural hair care and skin care products. Since the DLS is non-irritating and  doesn't  strip hair or skin of their natural oils, and cleans effectively, the skin and hair are left feeling soft and conditioned after rinse off of the formulated product.

If you need a good surfactant for making many top performing sulfate free products like mild Shampoos, hand soaps with low irritation this is a perfect choice. 

Used in foaming skin care products, creams and lotions with cleansing properties, baby shampoos, bubble baths and more.

Easy to use and easy to formulate with! DLS Mild can be used  as the primary or Secondary Surfactant, and often used as a hydrotrope. You can blend and combine DLS Mild with just about any another surfactant such as SCI (sodium cocoyl Isethionate), Sodium Coco-Sulfate Surfactant, and many other of our natural surfactants. And, to increase the viscosity, add approximately 2-3%  Crothix Liquid
