I do know both are more harsh than SLES, which actually isn't so bad as people make it out to be. I personally prefer it as my scalp had issues with a lot of milder stuff. Yes, issues, very bad ones.
Compared to SLS, it should be similar or slightly milder. Of course, formulation is key...
If you're going to try either I'd go for the C14-C16.
Very helpful post. Thanks.
Same to you Corrina. I'll have to look at the ratio of moisturizers to sulfonate.
