Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate (SLL) Emulsifier Ecocert Coming Soon

Notify me when this product is available:


Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate is a natural, food grade, emulsifier derived from the sodium salt of lactic acid esterified with lauric acid.  Unlike other surfactants known for irritating or stripping the skin (sodium lauryl sulfate) sodium lauroyl lactylate is known to be much gentler.

Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate offers unsurpassed skin moisturization and a smooth feel on application. This is the emulsifier of choice for all of your natural products when you want top shelf performance. An excellent choice for your facial products and any products geared toward advanced moisturization. Unlike Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate is a great foamer when your formulation is developed for that purpose.

Due to their sodium backbone the lactylates are able to penetrate the top layers of skin to offer:

  • residual moisturization (moisture barrier)
  • extended fragrance release
  • enhanced delivery of actives

Some important product points to keep in mind when formulating with the lactylates.

  • unlike stand alone emulsifiers there is / are very little thickening properties
  •  In higher concentrations, it functions as a surfactant.
  • unlike the more common surfactants they will not respond to sodium
  • the lactylates are non-ionic
