Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate

* A surfactant

Functions:

Little information is available regarding Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, but the Cosmetics Database notes that it is the sodium salt of the coconut fatty acid amide of N-methyltaurine. It is labeled as a surfactant and foaming agent, and CosmeticsCop.com also finds it to be a mild surfactant.

Safety Measures/Side Effects:

The Cosmetics Database only notes data gaps and no negative side effects or warnings regarding the use of Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate in cosmetics or personal care products. No definitive studies or warnings could be found elsewhere, although Health-Report.co.uk and another site both listed it as a synthetic toxin, with no explanation as to its toxic properties. Under its INCI name of Ethanesulfonic acid, 2-(methylamino)-, N-coco acyl derivs., sodium salts, it is listed as a skin and eye irritant (source).

Recommended Products with Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate:

Michael Todd Skin Defender Green Tea-Citrus Cleanser with AHA ($24 in the shop); Osmosis Deep Clean Facial Cleanser ($18 in the shop)

As much as possible, products in the Truth In Aging shop are chosen for their safety profile as well as effectiveness.
