Beware of the sweet foam!

  • by

Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) is a derivative of SLS made softer by ethoxylation (by adding ethylene oxide). A Common Component In Cosmetics, SLES Creates The Dense Foam That Can Be Found In Shampoos, Shower Gels, Dishwashing Products, Detergents And Toothpastes.

Toxicity, the facts:

The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified 1,4-dioxane as a probable carcinogen contaminating SLS or SLES depending on the manufacturing process of the latter.

1,4-Dioxane is not very degraded and it is incredibly slow to disappear either in our bodies or in the environment. It is also found in so-called organic or natural products without certification. Beware! Read the ingredients carefully…

SLS and other similar derivatives are known to react with a large number of ingredients used in cosmetics. For example, 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol, DEA, MEA and TEA in contact with a product of the SLS family can potentially create nitronizing agents that can eventually become nitrosamines… which are carcinogenic! Less Technical But Certainly No Less, SLS Products Are Believed To Cause Hormonal Dysfunction.

Not All Chemicals (From Industries) Are Dangerous And Some Have Revolutionized A Wide Variety Of Fields. But When It Comes To A Product Or Compound That Seems To Present More Dangers Than Real Benefits.

We Should Not Hesitate To Pass On The Message To Our Loved Ones And Advise Them To Do The Same.

Because Today More Than Ever, If More In-Depth Studies Were To Be Carried Out, They Would Be The Result Of A Common Desire To Have Access To Quality Products That Are Guaranteed Free Of Toxic Products.
