    The title says it all and it’s a mouthful… I’ve never come across such a thing before. It’s supposed to be less irritating and, based on the Natural Origin Index that they reference, more natural than cocoamphoacetate.

    Can anyone with a higher brain power than me make any sense of this? Is there logic behind this? Are we expected to see such new surfactants as technology/understanding gets better/advances? Or is this complete rubbish? Genuinely curious!

    Raw material companies recognize that natural/green/sustainability is a trend in the cosmetic industry. Thus, when launching new surfactants they look for things that apply to that trend. They don’t necessarily look at performance but rather sourcing. Yes, you can expect to see more surfactants like this.

    No, these surfactants are unlikely to perform better. But performance isn’t the key driver in todays green-focused market.
