What is it?

Sodium Laureth Ether Sulfate is a surface-active agent or surfactant. Surfactants are compounds that lower the surface tension between two liquids, between a gas and a liquid, or between a liquid and a solid. Surfactants may act as detergents, wetting agents, emulsifiers, foaming agents

How is it made?

Sodium lauryl Ether sulfate can be made from petroleum oil or from coconut or palm oil. In both processes, fatty acids are extracted and converted to fatty alcohols, then sulfonated to become a crystalline salt. If SLS undergoes a chemical process called “ethoxylation,” it becomes SLES.


Both of these chemicals are used in products primarily as emulsifiers (to help keep all ingredients properly mixed up) and surfactants. They can be found in shampoos, toothpaste, mouthwashes, body washes, soaps, detergents, and more.
