Avoid sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)
A 1983, a report from the Journal of The American College of Toxicology blamed sodium lauryl sulfate concentrations as low as 0.5 percent for causing skin irritation. Further studies showed that concentrations of 10-30 percent were found to cause severe skin corrosion.
The "Household Products Directory" of the National Institutes of Health lists over 80 products that contain sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate with concentrations up to 30 percent. These high concentrations not only affect the skin's outer layers, but are absorbed into the biggest organ in the body, the skin, and stored in tissues.
Sodium laureth is now commonly used in place of sodium lauryl, but it can be even more dangerous. Laureth cannot effectively be removed from the liver. Laureth can be stored stored in tissues and promote toxicity for a person's entire lifetime, draining them of energy.
These chemical soaps are popular mainly because of price, but they aren't worth the negative, long-term draining of energy. Many consumers are finding it more important than ever to spend the extra dollar here and there to assure they have what is natural and pure, for their body and for the environment. Small farmers and manufacturers of all natural products are the future for a population which seeks to survive, healthily, happily.
