Product Overview

Cola®Mate LA-40 is a very light colored, mild sulfosuccinate surfactant derived from natural lauryl alcohol. Cola®Mate LA-40 is more than 45% vegetable-derived due to the vegetable origin of the lauryl alcohol used in the product. Cola®Mate LA-40 is sulfate-free, ethoxylate- free and 1,4-dioxane-free – making it ideal for natural based, sulfate-free formulations.

Cola®Mate LA-40 provides very dense, voluminous foam when used to formulate personal cleansers, is extremely mild to eyes and useful in sensitive skin cleansers. Unlike other sulfosuccinates, it provides good viscosity response when formulated with other anionics. Despite its high Krafft point, Cola®Mate LA-40 can be used to formulate clear products.
