Information on ingredients change all the time and for this reason we sometimes have ingredients permitted in products that are starting to attract negative attention – this does not mean however, that they are a problem, just that there are data gaps.
Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate is one of those ingredients. This is what we know about it – to use it or not to use is your call. Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate is approved by Ecocert, and is also approved in the new COSMOS organic standard. The ingredient is sulphate free, it is not processed with ethylene oxide or 1,4dioxane, and has a good sensitivity rating. The Cosmetics Database finds Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate to be a moderate hazard ingredient, primarily because of its potential to be contaminated with nitrosamine (a known carcinogen) and because of its classification as a penetration enhancer. Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate should not be used in cosmetics and personal care products in which N-nitroso compounds may be formed (CosmeticsInfo.org). Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate is not expected to be potentially toxic or harmful, and has a low oral toxicity. It is not found to be mutagenic, irritating orsensitizing, although as stated above, it may enhance the penetration of other ingredients through the skin which is a good or a bad thing depending on what other ingredients it is mixed with. It has an EWG rating – the rating is 3/10, primarily due to data gaps.

Tiny amounts of Phenoxyethanol have been used in this product. Although this is a synthetic ingredient, Giovanni believe it to have an excellent safety record. It is also on the list of permitted preservatives for use in cosmetics certified as organic by the Soil Association, and is approved under the Nordic Swan mark scheme that measures the environmental and health impact of cosmetic ingredients. Ecocert from France, have recently limited its use and will no longer allow it to be used in products certified by them from next year onwards. It has not been found to be a skin irritant or sensitizer (Ruth Winters, M.S.) and the CIR expert panel concluded that it is safe as a cosmetic ingredient. France has concerns about phenoxyethanol, although opinion of how serious these concerns are seems to vary widely within the industry. Due to the fact that this ingredient is used by many organic suppliers worldwide but does attract some contention we decided to give you the choice.
