Sodium Behenoyl Lactylate

* An emulsifier


Sodium Behenoyl Lactylate is an ingredient used and manufactured most often by the herbal ingredient community because it is vegetable derived. It was originally used as a food emulsifier, but is now seen in cosmetics and personal care products because of its ability to serve as an emulsifier, humectant and conditioner in hair and skin care formulas. It is seen in skin creams, lotions, facial cleansers, and bath products such as bath butters and scrubs, according to, one of its herbal manufacturers. It is also used as a gellant in antiperspirants and deodorants that also contain drying silicones or alcohol, as well as bar soaps that are drying, because it adds moisture and is not considered irritating.
