Sodium lactate is the salt of lactic acid, and is a wonderful humectant and moisturiser in skincare products.

In addition to its moisturising properties, it is commonly used in soap making to help harden the soap. A harder bar means the soap can be unmolded quicker (saving you time), and it lasts longer (making customers happy).

Size: 50ml, 100ml, 200ml, 500ml or 1L.
