Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate Production Cost Analysis 2020
Sodium lauryl ether sulfate, or SLES for short, is an anionic detergent and surfactant that can often be found in several personal care products like soaps, shampoos, toothpaste, etc. It is known to be an inexpensive and effective foaming agent. SLES is also used in:
- Dental care products, such as toothpaste or teeth whitening products or mouthwashes.
- Grooming products, like shaving creams, lip balms, hand sanitizers, nail treatments, and makeup removers.
- Creams or lotions, including the hand cream, face masks, anti-itch creams, hair-removal products, and sunscreen lotions.
Sodium lauryl ether sulfate is produced by the ethoxylation of dodecyl alcohol, which is produced commercially from palm kernel oil or coconut oil. According to the tests, SLES is safe for consumer use. Further studies show that SLES does not react with DNA. According to a 2015 study, SLES is even safe for use in household cleaning products.
