Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate
"I emailed Organix customer service to inquire about how much Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate their shampoos contain. Here is the complete, unedited answer:Thank you so much for contacting us! Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate is a foaming agent in ---. Just to clarify, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate has not been sulfated in the production process which makes it free of sulfates. Even though it may sound alike, it is not a Laurel Sulfate. Sulfosuccinates are the sodium salts of alkylester of sulfosuccinic acid not sulfuric acid. Sulfates are salts of sulfuric acid. This surfactant is a very mild surfactant and can be found in many sulfate free shampoos that are on the market today. We use approximately 21%. Have a great day!Sincerely,Customer Service Department
Vogue InternationalA 21% Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate solution would be comparable irritation-wise to a 4.2% Sodium Lauryl Sulfate solution. I think the average drugstore shampoo contains about 10% SLS. If I'm right, that means Organix shampoos are less than half as irritating as the average SLS-containing shampoo." -http://kittenish.onsugar.com/Disodium-Laureth-Sulfosuccinate-vs-Sulfates-6216981

What is it:Cocamidopropyl Betaine is a surfactant. (Surfactants give shampoos and detergents their cleansing and lathering properties.) It's derived from coconut oil and Dimethylaminopropylamine.Why it's a risk:Cocamidopropyl betaine is a known skin, eye, and lung irritant. Additionally, at high temperatures and under acidic conditions, it can form carcinogenic nitrosamines. Types of products that use this ingredient:Shampoo, body wash, dish soap, bubble bath, scrubs" -http://chemicaloftheday.squarespace.com/todays-chemical/2009/6/21/cocamidopropyl-betaine.html
"Today's Chemical:Cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine (aka, coco hydroxysulfaine).EWG Hazard Score:0What is it:Cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine is similar to cocamidopropyl betaine. It is a synthetic detergent used also as a foam booster, thickener, and anti-static agent. What are it's risks:Like cocamidopropyl betaine, it can be a strong skin allergen. (Source)Steph's Opinion:There is only ONE published study regarding the safety of this ingredient. The MSDS sheet is also not made public. Although the database scores it as a 0, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's safe--it's just means that there is no data on the ingredient. So, while it doesn't have a history of being harmful, it also doesn't have a history of being safe. If you have skin sensitivies, eczema, reactions, and such, I would personally suggest avoiding this ingredient. "
