C14-16 olefin sulfonate

Does anyone know what C14-16 olefin sulfonate is? It's in the EMBS I just ordered.
3a/3b~Currently: V05 Kiwi Lime/Tea Therapy Vanilla Mint for co wash, Suave Aloe or V05 Strawberries and Cream for co and leave-in, Burts Bees Super Shiny poo, EMBS, CK, re:coil, B&A/LA Looks Sport

I'm wondering too. I asked in the ingredient questions about that and similar ingredients.
3b-3c CG
Hi- the "C" refers to the number of carbons in the molecule; "olefin" means a carbon chain having double bonds. Most likely, these are derived from fats and oils. Anyway, it is a sufactant, used for detergency/ foaming/ cleaning. HTH

Kiva! Microfinance works.

I agree. I find the elucence mbs to be extremely gentle.

hmmm...it looks like there are two surfactants in the EMBS that are in the same category as the harsher sulfates. Darn for ordering this before asking. But so many ppl on here love the stuff!

The sulfates are further down, which helps. Really, aside from the lather, it doesn't have a traditional shampoo feel to me. I know it won't work for everyone, but I like it.

I'll give it a try. I was looking for something to replace my JC HCC that is cheaper and saw so many good reviews on here that I didn't even think to find out if it was CG friendly. Swap board it is if I don't like it. :-)
