Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate

Gently cleansing
Products with this ingredient

Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate (DLS) is a gentle surfactant agent that cleanses skin and hair.



All surfactants are partly water-soluble and partly oil-soluble, allowing oil and water-based ingredients to blend well. This means it will trap oil-based dirt from hair and skin and allow it to be easily rinsed away. 

DLS is often used as a milder alternative to sulfates, although one doesn’t systematically replace the other as they are not the same material and will not behave in the same way with other ingredients.
