The Potential Effects of SLS - Sodium Lauryl Sulphate

SLS AKA Sodium Lauryl Sulphate can also be spelt Sodium Lauryl Sulfate like for example in Canada.

There are other names which are used & have the same or similar effects:
Sodium Laureth Sulphate
Can cause or promote acne;skin, eye or lung irritation; may contain trace amounts of ethylene oxide or dioxide.
This ingredient is Petroleum derived!

Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate
 This ingredient is exactly the same as Sodium Lauryl Sulphate.
This ingredient is Petroleum derived!

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate
Skin & eye irritation; suspected liver toxicity; can cause or promote acne; penetrates skin and accumulates in the vital organs; eczema; toxic to aquatic organisms
This ingredient may be Petroleum derived!

Thes ingredients are being used in almost all our everyday products such as toothpaste, shampoos, dishwashing liquids, & shockingly also in our kids BABY BATH WASHES almost every product.

Be aware that this ingredient is also in the Enjo Cleaning products that they have recently joined forces with. Now why would you, if your promoting Healthy cleaning products & cloths etc why would you join forces & sell products which are made in Canada & that contain SLS in them? I have had many clients comment on this & in fact have now stopped buying their products for this reason.
To Canadian standards SLS is not known to have any affects to humans. mmmmmm & so have added into all their cleaning products. SO if you ask me why have they hidden the face that it's in their products????? Makes you wonder.

This is one thing WE at Pure Earth Noosa do not have in any of the products that i sell!
