Why 7 Surfactants in a Shampoo?!
So I just got a new shampoo and Im trying to formulate my own. But I was reading through the ingredients and if Im correct it has 7 detergents….Please correct me:
Most to least-
sodium lauroyl sarcosinate,coca betain,sodium cocoamhoacetate, lauryl glucoside, decyl glucoside, sodium cocoyl glutamate, sodium lauryl glucose carboxylate….
This is the longest detergent list Ive ever seen on a shampoo. I will say it foams like crazy so Im assuming some may be foam inhancers…
1. But are all these really needed?
2. why so many?
3. Of course I can look it up, but anyone know off hand if all of these are COSMOS approved?
