Does Ecover use SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) in its products?
Yes. There’s a lot of misinformation out there about SLS but it’s an ingredient we feel confident using. Here’s why: SLS and SLES (sodium laureth sulfate) are surfactants that have many great properties, both for cleaning and for the environment. First, they’re derived from plant oil, such as coconut oil, which means they meet our objective to use plant-based ingredients. Second, they have a low aquatic toxicity and are quickly biodegradable. And, third, they have excellent properties that give you the clean you expect.
