About Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate
Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate is a gentle, coconut oil based surfactant and foaming agent, ideal for sensitive skin. This mild cleanser helps remove dirt and oils without stripping your hair of its natural oil, giving it strength and shine. It helps create an excellent foam and lather, something most other plant-based surfactants are missing. It also helps thicken the formula so that the shampoo or cleanser is easy to manage and spread across your hair and body.
Considered a low hazard and non-irritant, it is even used by NASA who need to pay extra attention to the products they use to ensure they don’t pollute the very finite water supply. Although there are some websites stating there’s a risk of nitrosamine contamination, which is linked to cancer, a claim we take seriously, after extensive research through legitimate literature and discussions with experts in the field, we found no evidence that this is a legitimate concern. An important reminder that you can’t trust everything you read on the internet.
