Sulfate free toothpaste | Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) free toothpaste
Sulfates such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium laureth sulfate (SLES)
are detergents that give toothpaste,
facial cleansers, body washes, liquid hand soaps,
hard soaps, shaving foam, and shampoos their ability to foam and lather. They are
usually made from petroleum and can also be manufactured from vegetable and coconut oils
filled with pesticides.
Sulfates can cause organ system toxicity, environmental toxicity, eye irritation and skin rashes.
Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep database states it may also be called
SODIUM DODECYL SULFATE;
SODIUM DODECYL SULPHATE;
SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE;
SODIUM SALT SULFURIC ACID,
AQUAREX ME; AQUAREX METHYL
