Item details

Pure High Quality, High Active Sodium Lauryl Sulfate Powder

Sodium lauryl sulfate from the sulfation of fatty alcohol via a particular specialty chemical process.

CAS 151-21-3

A high active powder of exceptional quality.
Typically used as a foaming agent in many common products - even as a mouth dispersant in dentifrices. Because
of its low levels of unsulfated material, this particular high quality grade will not cause dental / toothpaste formulations to
have the bitter taste associated with other cheaper grades of sodium lauryl sulfates.

Sodium lauryl sulfate is used in a wide range of cleaning products since it produces copious amounts of foam and cut soils and suspend soil particles so they can be washed away. For household use, it can be found in some dishwashing liquids (hand dish) , some carpet cleaners, toilet cleaning products, tub & tile cleaners, stain and odor removers, all purpose cleaners, laundry detergents, shower cleaners, upholstery cleaners, and more.

Our high quality material can also be
used in powdered formulations such as hand cleaners and powdered baths, and can be used in liquid hand
soaps and shampoos.

This product should ONLY be used in a well-ventilated area. Avoid inhaling dust.
Contact with the eyes and prolonged contact with the skin should be avoided. Wash thoroughly after handling

Average review
FAST shipping, great pricing, double-wrapped in heavy bags, and nice format - it's an actual powder, which I prefer to the large flakes I'd received from a different vendor, because the powder dissolves easier and can even be used as hand soap without pre-dissolving: I can just sprinkle a tiny bit into my hand and it works like soap. It will be even better in the bath - FWIW, plain, pure SLS is about the only wash I can use due to some oddities with my skin. So I'm very happy to have found Chemistry Connection on Etsy!
