Abstract

In the paper the influence of the type of surfactant in shaping safety of shower gels was presented. For this purpose, two types of washing cosmetics different in terms of surface active compound were used. In regard of increasing environmental awareness of consumers and on the basis of „green chemistry”, a mild surfactant – Inulin Lauryl Carbamate (lNCI) has been used in the former preparation. The ingredient in the second washing cosmetics was Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) – a widely used anion surfactant. The irritation potential on the basis of the zein value as well as the skin dryness level were assessed in these preparations.
