High Health Hazard. 1,4 dioxane Contamination concerns.
Sodium Laureth sulphate is a common surfactant used in many personal care and consumer products, usually as a ‘gentler’ alternative to the skin irritating Sodium Lauryl Sulphatei. It can still produce skin and eye irritationii and has been shown to produce skin changes in mice, also interfering with natural skin enzymesiii. SLES is an ‘ethoxylated’ product, meaning it has been processed with ethylene oxide. The consequence of this is that there is a chance the final product is contaminated with 1,4-dioxane, which is a carcinogenvi.
