sulfates are polyatomic anions. They are found in nature as well as synthesised for industry. They can be found in the products of everyday use. Also, sulfates are the salts and esters of sulphuric acid, from which they can be produced. They can also be obtained from coconut or palm oil. These compounds play a significant role in many industries because they are good emulsifiers, detergents, and foaming agents. Further, they are surfactants and their addition to products make them more effective cleaners. Sodium lauryl and sodium laureth sulphate are the most common sulphate-based ingredients in personal care products.
