H Care® LA-40 MB is a Certified Mass Balance (RSPO) product. It is derived from palm oil that contributes to the production of certified sustainable palm oil. This odorless, mild sulfosuccinate is derived from natural lauryl alcohol. It has more than 65% bio-based carbon content due to the vegetable origin of the lauryl alcohol used. This is a sulfate-free, PEG-free, and 1,4-dioxane-free material, which makes it ideal for natural-based, sulfate-free formulations. It provides very dense, voluminous foam and has a talc-like after-feel. It's mild to eyes and useful in sensitive skin cleansers. Despite its high Krafft point, this can be used to formulate clear products.
