Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate is a special natural emulsifier derived from the sodium salt of lactic acid and stearic acid.

It acts as an emulsifier, conditioner and mild anionic cleansing agent. It boosts foam and conditions hair and skin. 

Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate offers a number of possibilities in skin care. Some of these properties are unsurpassed in skin care and include skin moisturization and a smooth sensory appeal on application.


Due to its sodium centre or backbone the lactylates are able to penetrate the topmost layer of the skin and offer moisturizating effects and also act as a moisturisation barrier to the skin.

It helps to boost foam and can condition hair and skin.
Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate has wide application in formulating creams, lotions, facial cleansers, shampoos and bath products such as bath butters & scrubs.

    Unlike most emulsfiers it doesn't have thickening properties 

    The lactylates are strong non-ionics and are therefore incompatible with cationics

    Do not use with the cations

    Do not use when the final pH of product will be very low or very high.
