What is SLES 70% Used For?

Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate, or SLES, is an anionic surfactant which has a variety of uses in rinse-off products as the leading surfactant. SLES is available in two active concentrations namely 28% and 70%, with the latter being the most widespread of the two, and widely available from suppliers such as Chemi.

SLES has excellent detergency, and it is known for its emulsification and foamability. It is one of the main components in rinse-off products and as an added benefit, it is compatible with all surfactants, except cationic.

Distribution and availability in South Africa

SLES 70% is widely available in South Africa from several wholesalers, retailers, and direct suppliers such as Chemi. Chemi is one of the leading suppliers due to its strategic positioned location, making it easier to serve various companies and various other individual, professional clients in the chemical sector.

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) is a surfactant which is a cleaning product that is highly effective but is known to be an irritant when it is left on the skin for extended periods. SLS can damage the outer layer of the skin if used too frequently and for too long.

SLES is a much gentler option and does not damage the outer layer of the skin.

The easiest way to dilute highly active surfactants, such as SLES 70%, is to use a high-shear in-line mixer on a recirculation basis, or any other mixer built for the effective dilution of high active surfactants.

SLES can be neutralised through dilution.

SLES is made from coconut or palm oil, and it is biodegradable. However, if SLES are contaminated by 1.4-dioxane, it can turn the compound into a non-biodegradable substance. This means that it will not decompose for an exceptionally long time, resulting into severe impact on marine life, as all wastewater eventually ends up in the ocean.
