Taurates are anionic surfactants with excellent foaming in the presence of sebum. They thicken with amphoterics and salt, particularly at
low pH and are stable over broad pH ranges. These ingredients are ideal for facial washes, low pH anti-acne treatments, high pH fatty acid soap formulations, intimate hygiene, hair dyes as well as low pH shampoos.
This family has been favored by formulators in applications due to their mildness and their foam enhancement benefits. Taurates provide a great skin feel, improving the overall sensory experience due to a creamy and rich foam profile as well as a conditioned after-feel.
