Treat yourself good. Understand more about SLS and SLES to make your skin better.
#What is SLS?
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is a common ingredient in personal care and cosmetic products. It is an emulsifier and foaming agent that allow cleansing products to foam. SLS is present in most body washes, soaps, shampoos and toothpastes. SLS is irritants at concentrations of 2 percent or greater, Cosmetic products should not contain concentrations greater than 1 percent of SLS. Undiluted SLS can cause skin and eye irritation, as well as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea if ingested. According to the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database, SLS is a "moderate hazard" that has been linked to cancer, neurotoxicity, organ toxicity, skin irritation and endocrine disruption.
In children, SLS has been linked to eye irritation and poor eye development. Even at very low levels, the product may be absorbed through the skin and cause issues with eye health. It would seem that children’s products should be scrutinized more closely, but often they are not. A number of studies have indicated that SLS will remain in a person’s system (Brain, Heart & Liver) for up to 4-5 days which means if you are using a non SLS free product at the same volume and same rate of application then Sodium Lauryl Sulfate will remain a constant in your body.
