Cleansing product – ammonium lauryl sulphate

Hi Mads,

I’m very confused when choosing a cleansing product for my face.

I have finally found one, but it contains Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate.

I’ve both read that this can be very irritating for your skin and other places you can read that it is very mild and can’t be compared to Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, which is very tough for your skin.

What do you know about this?

Hi Daniel,

Ammonium lauryl sulphate is extracted from coconuts and it is primarily used as a cleansing ingredient and considered to be both very gentle and effective.

So, you can use this ingredient without worrying.

I really hope that you can use my answer.
