CAS No. 1847-58-1

SurfPro™ SLSa is a mild, sulfate-free surfactant with good cleansing properties and a hair and skin friendly pH. A mild, anionic surfactant that produces excellent flash foam, foam, and lather as well as large stable bubbles, it’s used extensively in solid bubble baths, bubble bath scoops, and foaming bath bombs, as well as solid cleansing products, such as body washes, bottle-less shower gels, moisturizing body bars, and cleansing sticks.

SurfPro­™SLSa is naturally derived from coconut and palm oils.

SurfPro™ SLSa is perfect for shampoo bars for all hair types with an acidic pH of 6.3, and combines well with other anionic surfactants, such as foaming oats, foaming apple or foaming oat; non-ionic surfactants, such as Polysorbate 20 or 80; cationic surfactants, such as SurfPro™ CAPB; or blends, like Miracare Soft 313.
