sodium lauryl sulfate. If you have sensitive skin and are prone to acne, dermatitis, rosacea, and skin irritations, I would take a look at all your products you use. Hand soap, shampoo, skin cleansers, body wash, toothpaste, etc. I guarantee all of them have SLS in them. I have dermatitis right now, and Im reading online that SLS causes skin irritations for people with sensitive skin. So if you are struggling with any irritation, go all natural. There are plenty of natural products with no chemicals in them.

isnt it made from lauric acid derived from coconut oil?

if you ask me, its a fine natural based detergent.

little cause for alarm here, unless you have some good evidence to the contrary?

or perhaps i am wrong on this one? i think i may be right tho.

there are likely other ingredients you should be more concerned about then sls.

After I stopped using things with sulfates in them my face definitely got better. So I totally agree with the original poster.

Well I only wash my face and hair with water and that problem subsided. I concluded that chemicals were not to my benefit in the long run, SLS free or not.

"

  1. "Shampoos with SLS could retard healing and keep children's eyes from developing properly. Children under six years old are especially vulnerable to improper eye development. (Summary of Report of Research to Prevent Blindness, Inc. conference."

  2. "Sodium Lauryl Sulphate can cause cataracts in adults and delays the healing of wounds in the surface of the cornea."

  3. "Sodium Lauryl Sulphate has a low molecular weight and so is easily absorbed by the body. It builds up in the heart, liver and brain and can cause major problems in these areas."

  4. "Sodium Lauryl Sulphate causes skin to flake and to separate and causes roughness on the skin."

  5. "Sodium Lauryl Sulphate causes dysfunction of the biological systems of the skin."

  6. "Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is such a caustic cleanser that it actually corrodes the hair follicle and impairs the ability to grow hair."

  7. "Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is routinely used in clinical studies deliberately to irritate the skin so that the effects of other substances can be tested." (Study cited by the Wall St Journal, 1st November 1998)"

Something being derived from coconut oil does not make it "natural" by any means.
