Happy New Year!
New Year’s Resolutions For Healthy Skin:
Examples of sulphates to avoid are SLS: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and SLES: Sodium Laureth Sulfate
Why are Soul Story Skincare products free from sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)?
Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is potentially harmful to the skin and hair (espeically for those with sensitive skin). It cleans by corrosion, which means that it dries the skin and causes irritation by stripping the protective lipids from the skin’s surface, disabling it from effectively regulating its moisture balance.
Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is a synthetic detergent (cleaning agent) and surfactant (which means it makes bubbles). It is used in industrial products such as car wash soap, soap to wash engines, and bathroom & floor cleaners. Does that sound like something you would want to put on your skin? Sadly, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) is a common ingredient found in many skincare products.
Why are Soul Story Skincare products SLES-free?
To make SLS less irritating, it is often ethoxylated. This is a chemical process that adds ethylene oxide to SLS, resulting in the modified compound of SLES. But SLES is also a concern because it can be contaminated with 1,4-dioxane, which may be carcinogenic.
