    @Amittal It's more of an industrial surfactant. I would imagine it to be too harsh for hand wash. Why not just use the typical surfactants for cosmetic use?

    @Amittal i guess you can just ph must be not basic ( it is better to have ph near to 7 and lower)

    Agree, too harsh for skin use.
    albeit sometimes I wonder if SLS is just as harsh, if not harsher than sulfonate.

    As a nice experiment, you can try neutralizing LABSA with Magnesium hydroxide and see if the resulting Magnesium sulfonate remains water soluble.
    That would make it milder, like Magnesium laureth sulfate vs SLES.

    No!! LABSA is not recommended for personal care formulation.
    Try this commercial formula;

    1. Water balance to 100
    2. Glycerin   1
    3. SLES        14
    4. DEA          2
    5. BETAINE  1
    6. EDTA       0.2
    7. SALT       4
    8. Perfume & dye  qs

    Glycerin in formulations helps to moisturize skin and make it stay soft and supple. (Nina kalau, legit.ng)

    According to CIR you can use it if it is formulated to be non-irritating.


    Check with your supplier to determine if the grade of LABSA you have is suitable for personal care/cosmetic use.

    But as others have said there are other more suitable surfactants for a hand wash.

    Glycerin does nothing in rinse off formulations.
