Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate (SLES) continues to be the darling of manufacturers of household products because it’s inexpensive and an effective foam builder, helping to produce the bubbles that consumers associate with greater cleaning power.

SLES is an anionic surfactant with excellent emulsification and foamability capabilities making it widely used in rinse off products. Surfactants are used in cleaning products because they reduce surface tension, helping to wash away oil and grease.

Consumers often confuse SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) with SLES. But where SLS has been linked to cases of skin irritation and other skin conditions such as dermatitis, SLES is a safer and less harsh product often produced from palm kernel oil or coconut oil.

Common applications include personal care and home care products like Shampoo, Bubble Bath, Shower Gel, Face Wash, Dish Wash, Liquid Detergent, Hand Wash and even Toothpaste.

By 2024 the market size for SLES is expected to surpass USD 1.5 billion. This is primarily attributed to increased demand for personal care products throughout the globe, especially in developing nations.

Redox can supply SLES in variety of packaging including 170kg drums and 1100kg IBC and can also be sourced in 220kg drums and flexitanks. We can supply to customers across Australian, New Zealand and the United States.
