Document IconProduct Details

Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate, often known by the name "SLI," is a mild surfactant that is often used in shampoos, body washes, and facial cleansers, and is a favorite ingredient for those with sensitive skin. SLI has excellent foaming properties, providing dense, creamy lather to formulations. It is naturally derived from fatty acids derived from coconut.

Appearance: White to off-white flakes, chips or chunks
Odor: Mild, fatty
pH (10% solution @ 35 °C): 4.7 - 6.0
Solubility: Soluble in hot water, partially soluble in cold water

International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI):
Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate

Common Name Ingredient Listing (FDA Approved):
Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate

Usage rate: 3 - 30%

This "chunk" version of SLI can be used in several ways - it can be melted, or easily dissolved in other base surfactants or polysorbates or glycerin. SLI has limited solubility in soft and hard water, however it can be dispersed in water. This form of SLI, a chunk, does not contribute to dusting that can be seen with products in powder form. It is stable in aqueous formulations from pH 6-8 at ambient temperature.
