Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is useful in a wide variety of personal care applications in which viscosity building and foam characteristics are of importance. Because of its low salt content, this product is particularly useful in formulations that are sensitive to high levels of sodium chloride. It is used in shampoos, bodywashes, scrubs, gels, toothpaste, creams, lotions and anywhere copious amounts of foam are required, also bath products, shaving creams and medicated ointments. It is especially useful for opaque, pearlescent, or cream products.
