Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSa) Powder

Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, often called SLSa,  is a top performing, sulfate free gentle powder surfactant, derived from sustainable feed stocks. It conforms to Ecocert natural and organic cosmetic standard.

Great to use in: 

  • Bath Bombs
  • Bubbly foaming bath salts,
  • cream & paste shampoos,
  • Cleansing creams,
  • Fizzy shampoo bars
  • Bubble Bars
  • and syndet bars.

Our SLSa also known as Bubble Magic (tm)  is much milder to the skin than ethoxylated alcohol sulfates such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and other cheaper, more irritating  surfactants. It is an excellent choice to use as a surfactant if you are looking for a replacement for Sodium lauryl Sulfate powder or other more harsh products. And, SLSa is often used to replace regular soap whenever soap sensitization is found. Minimal to no irritation will occur at a usage rate of 3% concentration typically

Sodium lauryl sulfoacetate is used to make foam in bath products like dry bubble baths, bath salts, fizzy bath bombs, dry bath bubble and any other formulation where you want a nice foamy soap that is mild and phosphate free and non-toxic. It makes a blanket of bubbles that last! Cheaper foam / bubble products are harsh, and do not last as long as SLSa, a top quality surfactant.

1 Lb of powder equals approximately 2.5 cups.
