Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is used as a detergent, a foaming agent, and for viscosity building in personal care products. Due to its low salt content, it is useful in formulations that are sensitive to high levels of sodium chloride.. Its one of the most irritating ingredients in personal care products.yet used by almost every manufacturer worldwide.Found in shampoos and other personal care products, SLS is used commercially to clean floors, as an engine degreaser and a car wash Ammonium lauryl sulfate is the most strongly irritant, followed by sodium lauryl sulfate. SLS has a primary irritation index of over 5 means the test material is rated as a primary irritant, 2-5 means moderately irritating. Potentially, SLS is perhaps the most harmful ingredient in personal-care products. SLS is used in testing-labs as the standard skin irritant to compare the healing properties of other ingredients. Industrial uses of SLS include: garage floor cleaners, engine degreasers and car wash soaps. Studies show its danger potential to be great, when used in personal-care products. Research has shown that SLS and SLES may cause potentially carcinogenic nitrates and dioxins to form in the bottles of shampoos and cleansers by reacting with commonly used ingredients found in many products. Large amounts of nitrates may enter the blood system from just one shampooing. Sulphate (SLS) is a gold standard as an enhancer on transdermal absorption yet its used in Toothpastes and Mouthwash (unbelievably)

Thanks for the feedback!
please tel me what machinery use to making sodium sulfate?
sodium lauryl sulfate is harmful since it is carcinogenic, hence, avoid exposure to shampoos everyday since shampoos contain sodium lauryl sulfate used as a foaming compound
sds is an anionic detergent; close relative of sodium lauryl sulphate.it helps in cell disruption by acting on the cell membrane lipids and proteins
Sodium lauryl sulfate was not discovered by a specific individual. Sodium lauryl sulfate is a water-soluble salt, produced as a white or cream powder.
No it is a salt, which is weakly basic in solution.
Sodium lauryl sulfate, which is a detergent, is an ingredient of some brands of toothpaste. You should be able to tell by looking at the ingredient list on the toothpaste …tube.
It is used in toothpastes to create a froth.
Patanjali Dant Kanti......it is a herbal toothpaste by Baba Ramdev. Answered By-Rajshri Totla
No it is not the same. Sodium Sulfate = Na2SO4 Sodium Lauryl Sulfate = NaSO4C12H25
no but it can irritate skin and in exess can damage hair
Sodium lauryl sulfate is the detergent ingredient in toothpaste, it's what makes it foams when we brush our teeth. You can easily make your own homemade tooth cleaner with ba…king soda to avoid this chemical or check in your organic grocer's for lauryl sulfate free toothpaste.
Sulfate is the chemical name of an ion that is not a compound, which must have a neutral electrical charge; instead, each sulfate ion has a charge of -2. As a result, "sulfate…" can not exist in isolation from all other substances, but rather must be paired with positively charged partners such as cations, of which sodium is an example. It should be noted that sodium lauryl sulfate does not even contain sulfate ions as such, but rather lauryl sulfate ions, which contain carbon and hydrogen as well as sulfur and oxygen.
