Information on Sodium Lauryl Sulfate / Sodium Laureth Sulfate
Sodium Lauryl sulfate (sodium dodecyl sulfate) and sodium laureth sulfate are powerful detergents and are frequently used in personal care products such as liquid soaps, shampoo’s and shower gels. It is a relatively cheap ingredient and is used for its strong cleaning and foaming properties. However, the sulfate group is strongly acidic and frequently causes skin irritations.
Sodium lauryl sulfate is often used in laboratories to denature proteins (disrupting the protein's native shape), in preparation for gel electrophoresis. Sodium lauryl sulfate can be modified into a less reactive sodium laureth sulfate. Another closely related compound is sodium myreth sulfate.
In order to protect your skin from irritation, it is best to avoid using personal care products that contain sulfated lauryl alcohols. There are many personal care products on the market that contain more gentle surfactants such as cocamidopropyl betaine.
