A'kin Shampoo and Conditioner

I found these today at TG Maxx and I thought they looked good. I got the Ylang Ylang Colour Care Shampoo. It smells amazing. I think the ingredients are OK, but I get confused about which cleansers are gentle and which ones are harsh. Do any look like a problem?

Ingredients:
Aqua, lauryl glucoside, sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, cocamidpropyl hydroxysultaine, sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, disodium cocoamphodiacetate, glyceryl laurate, glycerin, sorbitol, citric acid, sodium citrate, sodium gluconate, sodium cocoyl glutamate, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel oil, sodium hydroxymethylglycinate, canaga odorata flower oil (ylang ylang), elettaria cardamomum seed oil (cardamom), eugenia caryophyllus (clove) leaf oil, d-limonene
Hair: 3A, fine, normal porosity and elasticity
My hair loves protein, especially keratin! It hates coconut oil and all butters.
Low-poo: MOP-C Hydrating Shampoo, Renpure Moisturizing Shampoo
Co-wash: Giovanni 50/50 & Smooth as Silk, Tresemme Naturals, NG Pomegranate & Sunflower
RO: TIGI MM, GVPCB
LI: KKKT, SM Curl Style Milk
PT: Mill Creek Biotin Conditioner
DT: CJ CR
Styler: CJ CCCL, CJ CIAB, LALSG, LAL Nutra Curl, Biotera Gel, Ecostyler Grip Gel
Teri LaFlesh, who created the Tightly Curly method, maintains an ingredients dictionary. According to that, sodium lauryl sulfoacetate seems to be the only questionable one.

Sodium lauryl sulfoacetate(aka Lathanol LAL, SLSA, Sodium dodecyl sulfoacetate)
Avoid
Increases foam, and is a cleanser. Said to be more mild than sodium lauryl sulfate, but is still a drying cleanser. Can strip hair of color.
You might want to try it, though. Everyone's hair reacts differently.
fine/med, dense, low porosity

low-poo: SM Curl & Shine, SM African Black Soap Shampoo
RO: One 'n Only Brazilian Tech Keratin Smoothing Cond.
leave-in: Giovanni 50/50 cond.
stylers: KCCC, KMFUM
I used the shampoo today and I was mostly pleased. It lathered up a lot, which isn't always good I guess, but it makes distribution easier. It rinsed very clean, but hair felt a little rough. However, I have yet to use a shampoo, sulfate or otherwise, that didn't leave my hair feeling that way. Conditioner quickly restored the softness and now my hair feels nice. Overall a win, I think. My hair does not feel dry at all. I also didn't notice any fading of my color, which I had done about 4 days ago.
