  • Surfactants That Thicken With Salt

    Posted by thebrain on July 28, 2017 at 1:52 pm

    After some experimentation and research, I figured out that not all anionics will thicken with salt. Is there a list somewhere? I work on sulfate-free formulas, so that’s likely part of the problem. Here’s what I know will thicken with salt:

    Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate
    Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
    Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate (Iselux)

    Will NOT thicken:
    Sodium Lauryl Sarcosinate
