Learn About Toxic Beauty Ingredient Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Hi, I-Spyers! Today’s ingredient is sodium lauryl sulfate. It is also written SLS. Okay this is actually one that is really harsh. It is used as a surfactant which is a foaming agent so like a cleansing agent and so it’s mostly used in soaps, shampoos, bubble baths, and even toothpastes. You might find it in moisturizers and mascaras as well. But this can be really harsh on the skin and eyes. It can be a very severe irritant.
In fact if you have dermatitis or eczema, you might want to pay attention to this ingredient because this is used in the cleaning industry to strip grease from floors because it is a great stripper but if you have a delicate also natural olive in our skin that protects us naturally and then when we used stripping ingredients like this we can strip that right off and they’re exposed causing a lot of irritations.
Other side effects, this is also a caused of endocrine disruptor so then you see all kinds of things like menopause, early onset puberty, PMS, and even going into reproductive organ cancers and things like that so this is one we want to remember to say right from. How do we remember it? Okay, so dumb we’re going to want to laugh but it’s real. It’s like real that it can seal your fate. Just a reminder, sodium, so dumb, you want to laugh but it’s real that gets seal your fate. That is the last, do you agree with me? Thanks.
