Why avoid #SodiumLaurylSulphate ( #SLS ), a harsh #foaming #agent

Why you should avoid SLS This powerful foaming agent (surfactant) unfortunately comes with a price - irritated skin and itchy scalp! Sodium lauryl sulphate is actually the most irritating surfactant used in foaming products - it is even used to clean engines, wash cars and scrub garage floors! When you use a product containing SLS you are stripping off the natural protective oil layer on your skin, leaving it irritated, itchy and inflamed. Studies on Sodium lauryl sulphate have shown that: . SLS easily gets absorbed and enters the bloodstream . SLS delays the healing of wounds . SLS causes skin irritation and flaking of the skin . SLS damages the hair follicle and impairs the ability to grow hair
