SLS is a foaming agent and one of the most commonly used chemicals found in cosmetics. It readily penetrates in the dermis. The chemical properties of SLS are such that it is used in many cleaning agents: car wash soaps, garage floor cleaners, engine degreasers and 90% of all foam producing products.
Health hazards caused by SLS include tissue damage that could result in liver, brain, heart and lung damage in the long term; eye damage; degradation of the immune system; severe skin irritation; hair loss and eczema. When absorbed through the skin SLS maintains residual levels in the heart, liver, lungs and brain (1) SLS is an animal teratogen (2). (teratogen = any agent that induces abnormalities in a developing foetus)
