The world of sulfates

More than "just" foaming agents

Consumers have not only become more environmentally aware in recent years, they have also become much more concerned with issues. In the field of cosmetics, this means that ingredients are being scrutinized. Sulfate surfactants play an enormously important role here. The two best-known sulfate surfactants that you know from your cosmetic products are SLS (SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE - sodium lauryl sulphate) and SLES (SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE - sodium lauryl ether sulphate). What can they do? Why are they so often criticized? As so often in life: There is not only black and white.

Much more than whipping up foam

When a discussion or report focuses on personal care and cosmetic products, surfactants and sulfates are sure to be mentioned.
