What is Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES)

Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES) is a widely used surfactant in personal and household cleaning products. It is chosen in our cleaning products for its exceptional surfactant properties, primarily acting as a detergent and emulsifier. Its amphiphilic nature enables it to break down and remove dirt and grease from surfaces or skin, allowing for effective cleaning. At the meantime, SLES is a derived from plant, coconut oil or palm kernel oil, making it a more eco-friendly choice compare with other petroleum-based surfactants.  While certain concerns have been raised, it remains a legally accepted and safe ingredient for use in personal and household cleaning products.

Safety Considerations:

  1. Skin Irritation: One common concern associated with SLES is its potential to cause skin irritation. However, many studies have indicated that, when used in appropriate concentrations, SLES is generally well-tolerated by the skin. It is essential to adhere to recommended usage levels to mitigate the risk of irritation.
    Our products undergo rigorous formulation design and quality control, including skin patch testing. This testing process ensures that, under proper usage conditions, our products is dermatologist approved to be hypoallergenic. The meticulous attention to formulation and quality management underscores our commitment to providing products that prioritize user safety and adhere to high-quality standards.

  2. Eco toxicity : SLES can have environmental implications. High concentrations of SLES in water bodies may contribute to water pollution and pose risks to aquatic ecosystems, including aquatic organisms. Even though, our products have been meticulously formulated to achieve high biodegradability. This means that, under stringent formulation design, our products break down efficiently, minimizing any additional burden on the environment. Our commitment to responsible formulation ensures that the impact on aquatic ecosystems is kept at a minimum, aligning with our dedication to environmental sustainability.
