Q&A: Substitutions for SMO/SMC taurate in a cleanser?

$10 subscribers! Check out this coupon for Voyageur Soap & Candle! 

If you know me, you’ll know I love Voyageur Soap & Candle! The amazing people and staff there are the reason I started getting hardcore into cosmetic chemistry instead of being content to be a kitchen chemist.
