Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (Liquid)
Sodium Laureth Sulfate 26% solution is useful in a wide variety of personal care applications in which viscosity building and foam characteristics are of importance. It is more mild then SLS and SLES is prepared by ethoxylation of dodecyl alcohol. The resulting ethoxylate is converted to a half ester of sulfuric acid, which is neutralized by conversion to the sodium salt. The related surfactant sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is produced similarly, but without the ethoxylation step.
Usage Guidelines: Shampoos, hand soaps, bath products, shaving creams and medicated ointments.
Synonyms: Sodium lauryl ether sulfate or sulphate
